Today I had four...yes count them four very talented artists visit my studio for a watercolor lesson with collage and each student made their own 8 by 10 canvas composition. Parker and his friend Caden made interesting inventions... inspired by Hugo Caberet's story in Paris. They played with three colors of transparent colors of bronze, silver and gold. Then they took to creating their invention man and added real metal gears and wheels. The beautiful girls Lauren and Tessa created name canvases for their bedrooms and employed alphabet stamps with glitter paints and then added collage flowers from handmade papers and paper punches. The more glitter the little ones used ....the happier the giggles were.
Patience is a very special skill for these delightful visitors.
Lauren's beginning sketch...she chatted about her flowers and birds while she sketched this beauty!
Tessa carefully created pink flowers ...she just loves pink!
The gentlemen selected color pencils for their designs before they added washes of metallic colors.
Caden added his metal gears...but I hope he goes home to add more of his design elements...we just ran out of time. He has a good eye for sketching but painting is another skill he can develop.
Caden's unfinished canvas...there is so much more he wanted to add...I know he is capable.
