Combining blind contour drawing, collage and a painted focal point are intertwined in these leaf studies created from deep observation and repetitive line work. The student artists are in 7th and 8th grade (12 and 13 years old).
The challenge was, beyond actual practice with the tools, to keep the eye of the viewer moving throughout the work. It was the major challenge for each step in the process and the constant subject of discussion.
