Students Choice  award went to Bethany for her drawing of still life with box and books.
Teachers choice went to Meggan for her multimedia drawing of a candle and wood bowl.

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

WARM UPS: 1. Texture with cross thatching. 2. Circles (shading into balls). 3 Grayation with cylinders.  4. Ribbons flowing and turning.

QUICK DRAW CHALLENGE: Students were given 5 minutes to draw twisted tubes of toothpaste. – a study on irregular shapes.

CLASS PROJECTS: Today will be students choice  The  students may choose from magazine pictures and photos or work from several still lives available in class.

TAKE HOME SKILLBUILDERS: How to draw a coneflower.

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: “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl instead they put it o it’s stand and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 NIV. As Christian artists we want to use art for The Lord. We need to find ways to be creative for God. There are many ways we can use our art, or whatever gifts we have, for the Lord. We can pick godly themes for our subjects, we can give testimony when our work is complemented, we can donate our art to worthy causes, we can create illustrations that will inspire and comfort people like greeting cards, posters, and framed art. Many Christian organizations use artist to help create brochures, advertisements, outreach material and gospel tracts. Pray and ask God to show you how to use your art.

Let me know if you are interested in joining The Summer Sketchbook Club meeting once a week for 2 hours to sketch outdoors during summer. Let me know which day is better Wednesday or Thursday. Club size is limited, cost is 10.00 per week, and siblings are discounted. (It is a great excuse to get outdoors!)

I am always happy to do a make up lesson at your home. Just get in touch.
