Grade 12 Still Life Drawings (AVI4M)

Grade 10 Conte Drawings (AVI2O)

You can't really tell by looking at them here, but these drawings are BIG!  I think I have converted some more students to conte and away from pencil- and you can see why- the pictures are bold, well drawn, and fast to create too.

Grade 11 "Graffiti" Drawings

In order to continue teaching my students to draw in a looser way, I gave them a very quick assignment where they were asked to gather inspirations from the city and street art and put them together using a variety of different lines, colours, and angles.  Here are the results.

Thank you!

Dear world,
My students and I would like to thank all of the people who have come by to check out our art.  We have had over 31 000 people stop by over the past two years, and we always look forward to seeing the comments and the number of visits. 
Ms. G-E.

Grade 11-12 Life Drawing (AVI3M, 3O, AVI4M)

It's a funny sort of assignment when I have to ask students to loosen up and stop trying so hard.  Learning to draw in a loose, expressive way can be difficult, especially for students who prefer a much more controlled way of working.  Here are some examples of life drawing exercises that we completed together.
