Charcoal Still Life

My amazing AP Art students finished up their charcoal lesson with these wonderfully rendered charcoal drawings of a cow skull.  We played around with different types of charcoal, created an abstract work, played around with value and then when eveyone was comfortable with the charcoal we drew from a still life.  Turned out great!

Mixed Media Self Portrait

For this project students layered their paper with gesso and line drawings and text.  Then they added blocks of colors and patterns and a contour line self portrait.  The students really enjoyed exploring new art materials.
