Fifth Graders in the House!

I had a great time this morning with my studio and gallery mate Martina Nitsche giving a talk about our respective work and in the end, doing a drawing work shop for Bella's 5th grade class. The exercise is called Blind Contour in which you are drawing one continuous line around every detail possible of your subject (fellow classmate) without looking at your paper and without picking up your drawing tool. It was wonderful to see them enjoying the exercise that is not about how it looks, but the process and skill of observation. They all did such a great job and had fun while doing it. I think we're ready to start some classes!
