While some of the artists have art backgrounds, some of our students are beginners. With an admiration for contemporary artists and the masters, we explore composition, drawing medium and color. Here are some examples of their work.
|Quiet study of "Lemons in Cloth", charcoal on paper|
|Strength of this drawing is the perspective of the artist.|
|The structure of the objects become sculptural. The shapes|
interrelate; gravity keeps them silent.
Once color is added a whole new dynamic comes to life.
The richness of the warms and cools and neutrals help bring an empty piece of paper to life.
Shapes and forms are defined. Shadows come alive.
|These pears, sitting in the sun, suggest the artist is|
in a warm climate such as the southwest - colors
of New Mexico.
|Another still life which reminds us of the southwest but actually the jars and jugs are from Africa, a pine cone and an apple accompany them.|
