Preliminary Oil Pastels - Student Work

I haven't shown you lately what my Beginning 2-D kids have been up to, but they have been really busy learning how to draw. I'll be posting their before and afters in the next couple of weeks so you can see their progress. But in the meantime, here are some sweet little oil pastel exercises they just finished up. This is their first time to use this medium and they are really enjoying it, finding their own style, learning about highlights, reflective lights and cast shadows, along with including a wide range of value in their local colorway. After showing my students the work of Professional Artist Loretta Grayson from Australia (post above this one), junior Michelle Lee was inspired by her work and included lots of scratched in detail in her prelim. above. Incredible piece Michelle!

Above senior Jennifer Park did this stunning pea pod, and below senior Michelle Guan, junior Janice Min and senior Rachel Kim all have found their own working styles.

So have senior Karen Pan and junior Crislyn Ogawa. All of you are on a roll, can't wait to see what you all do with the gluelines you are working on now.
