Printmaking tutorials

Finished the last of my mixed-media series of etchings – a varied edition: “Pretty Kitties” and I handed it in as my final project for Printmaking.

WednesdayDrawing Fundamentals

Getting ready for the art exhibition – we cleaned up the very messy classroom and decided what of our art work from this class to put up on a display board in the room. Each class will get as display board and a few pieces will go in the display cases in the hallway. I wrote up the class statement to go with our work.

Thursday Painting

Finished two canvases:

A small one of a pile of draped fabric,

A large abstract inspired (originally) by a cluster of dried gourds

The End is Near!

We had a get-together – a potluck BBQ. And a good time was had by all.

Art Exhibition next week!
