Drawing from Life

Above: Courtyard Sketches by Mr. Wales

During the first week of school, art classes made drawings from life, based on things they observed in the courtyard outside the artroom. On the first day, we drew plants and structures that we saw. On the second day we set up a still life of boxes, containers and a deer skull. The art students at Rowe showed a lot of creativity and analytical skills as they looked for shapes, shadow and texture in their surroundings. Below are just a few of the sketches students made.

  1. These look great! You're lucky to have Mr. Wales as your teacher. He's the teacher I wish I'd had in junior high school.
