For this camp, each day we completed a daily warm up mini drawing. Miss Ivey gave us a prompt or example, and then we created our own drawing.

Warm-Up Day 3: Gesture Figure-Drawing


One of our main projects we worked on this week was a Layer and Scratch oil pastel drawing. We drew an animal then used oil pastels in bright-colored special paint to fill it in. After our paint dried, we used tools to scratch small details into our work.

Our other main project for the week was a Grid Drawing of a silly selfie, focusing on composition and value.
