We had a chance to visit Mr. Lavigne’s General Art 1 class this week to see what they were working on.  Their most recent project is a charcoal drawing with a holiday flair.  We spoke with Francesca Beyer to learn more about this project and what it was.  She said students had to create their own still life using objects.  Each still life had to include 1 glass, 1 metal, and 1 fabric object.  Once they completed their setup the students took a close up photograph of the design.  The image was then printed in black and white and the students added a grid to the photo.  This grid is used to help transfer the image as a drawing to the larger piece of paper.  Once the basic outline and design is transferred to the paper students start to add value.  Value is the light and dark.  It was interesting to see how the students went about making each texture look different with the various techniques including smudging and erasing to create various levels of black and grays.  Thank’s for inviting us into the classroom and we look forward to seeing some of the finished products hanging in the hallway.
