Sketching again!

Spent the weekend camping at Camp Joseph in South Royalton, VT. I had a great urge to study trees. I think I will be doing more of this over the summer. I am still being inspired by E. H. Shephard’s work.

Creative Challenges

Yesterday, a student of mine turned in a creative game she created for a class assignment. It’s called “Noun Verb Noun.” Today, during my free draw time, I created a page of drawings inspired by bag joins feather. 

One of the ideas I have been trying to instill in my students is the idea of having a project mean more than the assignment. Make it something others will want and or use. This is a great example of someone being creative and using their art for a product. They went beyond the assignment and made it personal and potentially something that can help them make a living.
