|Garry instructs student on adding highlights to make the apple look three-dimensional.|
August's Art Club brought us a special treat. Guest artist Garry McMichael travelled from St. Louis to show us how to paint with pastels on Aug. 21. Students began by creating a color wheel to help them understand how to blend the colors. Next, each student picked out a banana and one other piece of fruit (apple, pear, or orange). They learned that by using shading techniques with different colors their pictures can look three-dimensional. Everyone had a great time and we wish he could join us for every Art Club. Thank you, Garry!
