Greta McComb a local artist has been visiting our class this term to share with us her art and talent. We are learning about artists. We all chose a great artist to study and made posters about them. Greta showed us some of her art works, she talked about why she paints and how she chooses her topics. This week we all sketched a still life of lemons and tamarillos. Greta taught us to look for shadow and light. We used our sketching pencils and then tried charcoal. It is the first time many of the new kids in our room have used charcoal! Our hands were filthy!!! But our sketches were very good.
