The Elementary Art Students really impressed me with their Animal Value Drawings this week. This was the most challenging lesson, combining what we had learned this month.
Oil painting supplies can be expensive, but the quality can directly impact your work. For example, you can purchase a student pack of paintbrushes and frustrate yourself because you cannot produce the mark you want. Or you can invest in one or two good paintbrushes that you take excellent care of; they will produce for you continuously. The same goes for inexpensive painting surfaces – unless you apply an additional level of gesso, the inexpensive ones will soak up your paint.
The Elementary Art Students created O'Keeffe inspired pastel paintings.
