Women who Art

After teaching art to elementary and junior high school students for the past eleven years, I decided the time was prime for teaching an adult art class. Today was our first class. ~ As you can see from the pictures, this is going to be one creatively focused group.

Each art student chose a subject matter to paint ~ cut from a magazine, downloaded off the internet, photographed from a still life scene, or copied from my own file of art work ~ their chosen image was scanned and printed into an 8" x 10" size ~ then measured and graphed into one inch squares. (I do believe there was one complaint registered about having to mix art with math, but they quickly got over that hurdle!)

Following this, they graphed their 16" x 20" canvas into two inch squares.

Then got to work - sketching the image -

square by square

onto their canvas.

As this group of ladies will prove
over the next few weeks -
you're never to young to start arting!


  1. Right on! We have plenty of adult students in the art dept. where I go to school. Art can change your life at any time!

    I hope y'all have a great time!

  2. It looks like you had a great time!
