Value Studies/Right Brain Drawing Review - Student Art

My 3rd year drawing students just completed these combination value study/realism drawing reviews using the right brain skills they have in place learned in 1st and 2nd year 2-d art. I gave each student a kernel of popcorn and they were instructed to enlarge it to at least 3" by 3", to draw it as realistically as possible and then to shade it in and include a cast shadow. In the top piece done 3 years ago by alum Rebecca Chung (probably the most talented art student I've ever worked with in the 30 years I've been teaching here) her kernel is morphing into a cobra ready to strike along with some other dark and frightening imagery. The bottom 3 were done this year by seniors Hannah Chang and Jullian Kho, and junior Jason Kwon.

  1. Hi Ms Agrums! I've been visiting your site for a while, but I never commented... but today I will.

    ...Yeah! I really like the blog. I especially like this post because I remember those 3rd years when they were 2nd years last year! I'm really happy to see how great they're doing and how they're still pursuing art.

    Gooood stuff.
