I had given my students the task of creating their own Logo, using the first letter of their first name and the first letter of their last name. They did thumbnail sketches to start with, next was a teacher – client critique to choose one for them to enlarge. During the process I gave them a watercolor paint demonstration of the materials. They had tube, liquid and watercolor pencils to choose from, or to challenge themselves and use more than one. The final Logo was created on watercolor paper to become the cover of their sketchbook. I am so VERY PROUD of the my 7th and 8th grade middle school 2D art students. Their hard work, effort and skills are really starting to shine. They are currently working on their final watercolor painting, gallery~show ready. I will share those as they finish.
I really LOVE inspiring the young artists, however REALLY miss having the time to sit, relax and create a few of my own pieces. I miss all of you too! My long work days, with two hour commute, homework and home chores seem to be overtaking everything else at the moment. This weekend I have 65 sketchbooks, with 6 assignments in each of them to check, grade and critique.
Sending you Wishes for a Productive Positive Day!
