Drawing & Painting II students are on to the next step in their contour line portraits. They began by using the blind contour drawing technique to draw one another. After completing a series of drawing students in class, students had the opportunity to draw friends and family outside of class to use for the project. Using either a single subject or a mash up of portraits, student worked on top of black gesso, using white lines, to create contour line portraits. Next up, adding the color and adjusting to the darker ground when painting.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
