Re-Visiting Mediums (Chalk Pastels): Observational Drawings

Today, children from the Gilliatte building were invited to the studio to try, or re-visit, another medium. Today’s work focused on still-life drawing using chalk pastels. The kiddos showed a lot of interest and excitement when they were shown how well the pastels “moved” and blended. It was really cool to watch the children transfer from practicing with the pastels to focusing on the colors they needed to accurately re-create the flower arrangement that they were observing!
