Acrylic paintings by Lily Johnston.  Lily has been working on these highly visual paintings of fruits and vegetables. The organic, the oval, and sensual shapes of papaya, apples, limes, peppers.  Developing her color sense and use of color next to color was her biggest challenge.

Lily has been working in landscapes, still life such as these and portrait work.  The student work in developing their ability in life drawing, studying from the figure, landscape painting and still life.

Isabella Norris spent a semester studying Renaissance portraiture.  Da Vinci's study of St. Anne is done in charcoal.  The use of chiaroscuro in Renaissance painting is what makes these paintings and drawings the more dramatic.  A strong sense of light source and the sculptural three dimensional aspects of the human figure is seen in this tentative charcoal drawing.
