Winter Birch Trees

I wish I knew how to rotate the image, but it looks like you'll just have to rotate your head.

This was the latest project from the "Pencil Pacers". They masked out the trees with tape, put a colored wash in the background, and finished them off with charcoal.

I think they turned out very nice. I like how different they are just like the kids themselves.

It's Potato Harvest time in Idaho! 
That means school is out but we still got together for class because 
art is always a vacation. 
Bjorn is talking to his class about the joy and importance of drawing a still-life. I think they ALMOST believe him. 

They were happy to get their hands on a few cans of spray paint in order to do some dip-art. They will be adding their own creativity to what you see here for a finished piece. I can't wait to see the end product.

We don't want the rest of the class who are gone to miss out on important projects so we had some fun with positive and negative shapes with the "Pencil Pacers".

Just another fun week at the studio.
