I LOVE hearing from teachers who are using “Drawing Lab” in their classrooms! Look at this fantastic work, created by high school students from Woodstock Collegiate Institute in Ontario, Canada!! Their teacher Sue writes:
Students spent three days creating many portraits…..they were to use photographs of family or friends, but for those who forgot to bring in photos, I had a collection that they could use. Students worked on 140 lb cold pressed watercolour paper cut to 5×7 inches.
– Station one was from Lab 9 Wrong Handed Portraits
– Station two was from Lab 11 Cheater Blinds
– Station three was from Lab 13 Eyedropper Faces
On the fourth day students were to experiment with colour on all of the images they had created over the previous three days. Students could use watercolours, pencil crayons, markers, gel pens, etc.
To finish off the project, on the fifth day, students needed to look at all of their images, and pick three that could work together as one art work. They did not have to select one from each of the three stations…..students could chose whichever ones they wanted from their stash. Once they had the images chosen, students followed an instruction sheet on how to cut the mat. They had several colours of paper to select from for the matting.
Thank you, Sue, for sharing these with us!! Please tell your students… WONDERFUL work!
