december in the art room - seasonal drawings

We were focusing on drawing for this class and learning about the importance of looking carefully at the object we are drawing. We began with quick pencil sketches of pinecones and foliage and then worked for a longer time in ink, using mince pies as our subject.

The second half of the class, those who hadn't finished their expressive portraits from last sesssion, worked on completing them and the rest of the group used the earlier drawings as a starting point for a festive collage.
