In the final session of the winter drawing lab participants were exploring traditional images such as The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and creating quick sketches of the shape and model presented in a black and white copy of the image.
Using various mediums and exploring the image through the eyes of cubism gave participants a new view the image, simplifying everything into basic shapes.
Looking at the human eye and exploring how to draw it using basic shapes is a fun exercise.
Learning to be free in drawing with many new mediums is a fun challenge for all.
Quick, 1 minute ink washes of Mona Lisa.
Looking at Picasso through cubist eyes is an interesting exercise for artists in the 21st century.
If what you see has sparked your interest, sign up for a spring class or workshop at the Art Junction beginning soon!
The Art Junction hosted the New Haven Daisy group as they stopped by to view the 2012 photography exhibition: Willard, Ohio…Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. It’s always a lot of fun to host eager young art viewers and see their honest and open reaction to art. The girls were very excited to view the photography show and learn about the Art Junction. They enjoyed sharing their insights on the photography and discussing which images they liked and the colors they enjoyed. It was a great first art viewing experience for the girls. The Art Junction is open to any local groups who wish to view our gallery exhibitions and be a part of a gallery discussion. Thanks girls, we look forward to you visiting us again!
