Wednesday, September 11 (3:30 – 5:30) - Drawing with Heart! With Sue Reed, local Rockland Artist
We will start experimenting, which is very important to learn about using different media – pencils, crayons, charcoal, etc. We are going to start with large drawings that show movement, and feeling! To begin, we are going to make movements with our arms, then express tis on large sheets of paper. Then, we will see what emotions have been expressed, detail the drawings, and make a part of this large piece into a smaller, abstract, expressive finished drawing.
