Student Finishes 2 Projects

The past several weeks Shayla has been learning to work with acrylics and to blend..She had never worked in paints prior to class
These 2 projects were executed to enter into the 4 H arts division and she finished in time to do so.

I think Shayla came away with her lessons well...she learned a lot about blending paint and the kinds of brushes to use and why

How to incorporate the different products used with acrylic paint and how to begin to shade with in her painting project.

This project she also learned how to image transfer using her own drawing for the image.
Which i encourage for her future projects.

Lets wish her well to take home the ribbon!

A few postings below you can see these projects in their beginning state.

thank you for visiting..

I think this is so great. Those are really important things to learn. She looks pretty pleased from the photo. I hope she goes on to create LOTS of things. :)Bea

Any young person with a yen for art and who takes on a 4-H Project is really up there in my book! Even if she doesn't win a ribbon she's a winner.

Shayla's work is lovely Mary! Well done to her and to you as her teacher. I wish her success!

I'm so glad she had you and your knowledge. Even if she doesn't win the blue ribbon (which she should), she has won just by learning from you.
