A Family of Charcoal Drawings

Most of my classes are for older students (high school and above) who are working on portfolios for art college admissions. But sometimes I also teach younger people.

I don't know about you, but when I was 9 years old, I was still drawing goofy hearts and rainbows. Look what 9-year-olds are up to these days . . .

In this class for homeschoolers at Excellence in Education, I have a whole family - including Dad! They are a talented group.

We meet for only one hour, once a week. And again, my students amaze me.

Note: I apologize - when photographing the work, I did not have the youngest son's drawing with me, or I surely would have included it!

You have amazing students which probably means you are an amazing teacher. I homeschool my kids and we are attempting to learn to paint. I found you on FB on Handmadeology link.

Thank you Melissa! Hurray homeschooling! My best advice for painting - mix those colors, see what happens, mix, and mix, and mix some more.
