I just started a teaching residency with an International School here in Seattle. For my first workshop we explored the self portrait, looking at examples of mostly female artists of merit from the 1500's to the Modern era. We also learned how to make and use a proportion map of the face. Here are the Kindergartners after their second day showing off their amazing efforts! There is nothing more fun than watching these incredible open minds simply soak up all that we discuss and work through together. It is so much fun being told out of the blue that I smell good while helping a little artist draw a nose with the beginning of structure, or getting a spontaneous joy-filled hug after telling a hard-working artist what I love about her experimentation. Did I mention that these classes are held in three languages?
