Friday Figure Drawing class: can you believe that these are middle school students?

Aliya Qureshi is age 12 and has never taken an art class before.

Aliya is in the house, and in the zone.

Another view of Aliya's work.

Brooke Fuller, age 13, and McKaeln Hart, age 11, are busy and intent on their drawings.

Looks like Brooke is in the zone!

More from Aliya Qureshi. Doing a rockin' rendering!

Dasha Berringer, age 11, is concentrating on her work.

McKaeln Hart is having a break through day working on her figure.

It is fun to see your student have "aha!" moments, and I think McKaeln was having one of those.
Dasha is using her pencil as a measuring and gauging tool.

Looks like Dasha is loving using highlights on her drawing.

It is fun to Have Miri Case, age 11, in my class again. I had her back in 2004 during Art Camp. Miri is also loving working on classical drawing with highlights.
Brooke is having a very good day at the drawing board. One of her best compostitions.

Ethan Raphael, age 11, is also having a very good day at the drawing board. Nice rendering, Ethan!

Miri is assessing her work after just having sign it.

Dasha is enjoying rendering shadows and highlights.

Another view of Miri and her work.

A nice view of Aliya and Andre (ou model) and making good headway into her drawing. Can you believe that all those above these are middle school art students?!?!?! They rock!

  1. Dear rose,
    I too am an artist who hung up her paintbrush for the motherhood. Now that my children are older, I find myself needing to get back. Could you tell me where to find more information about your adult classes. I would love the information and the chance to take one. Sincerely, Kate Johnson
