Contour Lines

The Studio Art students are learning about contour lines: lines that describe and define form. Using gourds for a still life, they are practicing the complicated technique. Later, next week, they will create a still life that uses their sketching skills as well as the Idea of form & contours as they create forms with completed value. (this drawing is my unfinished demo piece.)

Happy Fall! The leaves here at WMA are beginning to turn!

Color Wheel

Using red, blue, and yellow, students created their own color wheel
