Drawing with charcoal

The days are getting longer and the winter session is under way. Time to post pretty pictures of what  my middle school students are up to in the studio.



Still life of the day in charcoal and white chalk on some beautiful handmade paper I scored at  Seattle Re-Creative.


Finished!


A delicate touch.


Charcoal is all about layers. Sketch, blend, add the highlights and finish with a few strong black strokes.


We started the session with quick 5 minute contour line drawings of sneakers.  Students were to try to keep their pencils on the paper at all times.

  1. Hello yes it is a very innovative idea that drawing by using charcoal. I really like it. My son is also very much interested for drawing and painting. So last month I took his admission into Euro Art Studio which locates & serves for teens between 4-17 throughout the New Jersey, USA. It offers Art classes for children and teens in a wide range of mediums and by a certified Art teacher as well as working artist. I am very happy that he will know many new things there.
