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.

Warming Up- Grade 10 (AVI2O)

The weather is cooling off (a bit) but the talent of our students is just starting to warm up.  Sometimes it's hard to get into the groove of art when you've had months away from school, but everybody is really eager and excited to get back to work.

Here are some grade 10 "handscapes", a quick assignment to help the students refresh their skills.  At the bottom you can see what steps they are taking to learn how to use conte as well.  It's going to be a great year- stay tuned!
