Day 25 / 101 - Art Class

On Wednesday my children ended a six week art class taught during a lunchtime break at our Classical Conversations campus.  We brought in an outside art instructor for a basic introductory class to 2D mediums for beginners.  The class covered basic drawing exercises including gesture drawing, contour and blind contour drawings, descriptive drawings and sketches.  The students also learned color theory and image creating with the color wheel.

My children loved the blind contour drawing and the image creating with the color wheel.  You can see several of the class' drawings of the color wheel posted above.  My daughter drew a few with Harry Potter images, mainly a lightning bolt.  And, my son drew many with tornadoes, because natural disasters are quite fascinating to ten-year-old boys.
