Best in class goes to Lauren Fahey for overall rendition in her lighthouse.
Peer choice was voted to Cinthia Garner for her Raccoon.

 


PRE CLASS: Did any one draw over Easter break? (Such as skill builders, long term, other).  What can they show the class?  Positive constructive peer reactions are encouraged.

WARM UPS: 1. Repeated patterns squares and circles. 2. Gray shadowing bars. 3 Tornado swirls. 4. Scribbling scrabbling giraffes.

QUICK DRAW CHALLENGE: Students were given the choice of small simple items to sketch. Students are given 5 minutes to draw it.

CLASS PROJECTS: 1. Three drawings of the same subject a chipped coffee cup, each drawing must be either in a different medium colored pencil marker charcoal etc, or a different technique such as negative space, drafting, shadow, etc. or using a different pencil 2b, hb, 2h etc. 2. 

TAKE HOME SKILLBUILDERS: This week we have how to draw a kitten, and how to draw a rural scene using a fence as an element of  composition See my blog for additional helpful notes.

LONG TERM PROJECT: Continue to read the Book of Acts and illustrate each chapter. Keep these illustrations in a folder to mount later on. One illustration must be a person.

OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, d\o it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father  through him.” Colossians 3:17 NIV.
The last part of our verse is my focus today we must be thankful. We may or may not have a gift or blessing we may or may not have things our own way but we are still commanded to be thankful. Be thankful that our loving God is in charge and his love is the controlling factor in all events in our lives. Be thankful if your drawing comes out ok and be thankful if it is all messed up. God has a reason, the messed up project teaches us so be thankful for the learning it gave us. It should be easy for creative imaginative people like artist to see what they should be thankful for. The problem often is remembering to be thankful.
