Drawing & Painting II just handed in their observational drawings of bamboo. Working on two different paper surfaces and using two different drawing media, students concentrated on the values and textures found in the bamboo. The real challenge was keeping the values consistent as they transitioned from one medium to the other. This project was such a success for everyone! Students had the opportunity to make choices about color, texture and techniques. Even though we all started with a bamboo plant, they all have a different mood and feel about them.
