It's time for another set of sketches--in no particular order. Many sketches were chosen for their intriguing and creative connection to the sketchy word chosen. In addition, this set has several facial parts included because we were practicing drawing realistic looking faces. I think that you'll agree--the students did a great job with these.
Our latest artist was painter Henri Matisse. Matisse, true to what seems to be our artist theme of the year, was very intent on using color to express very specific things in his work. He was a leader of the style known as Fauvism, and did a variety of works. The painting we used to inspire student projects this time around was called "La Negresse." Enjoy a sampling true to this style.
