A couple of weeks ago I started a new adventure...someone in a local home school group mentioned that they were looking for a beginning drawing class. With a little nudge from a wonderful friend I decided that was something I could do!
I made lots (and lots) of notes....lists...googled quite a bit...and finally came up with a set of lesson plans that I was happy with.
Each week we are learning about a different artist....we started with Leonardo...I couldn't think of anyone better. A man of many hats and wearing them all so well.
We are, of course, exploring many different types of drawing materials - a perfect time to pull out my precious pencil box. This box was made by my Honey (that is what we called our grandfather) when I was just a girl! It makes me happy every time I open it up to search for what ever it is I need.
I have a collection of art books available, in case someone has a spare moment to fill, and some flowers...from...MY GARDEN! During our first class we made portfolios (to hold all the beautiful artwork we will create), we created our own sketch books (to practice, practice, practice) and we worked with all of our various materials (you can imagine how happy I was opening and closing that pencil box!). It was a great day and I am excited about this challenge.
Get a paper and pencil and do a sketch today! And, let me know how it turned out!
