Bayou Art

Elijah is enjoying art class through Bayou Art Classes. I’m loving the art pieces he has completed.
This piece is an 8x10 chalk pastel of fall leaves. Dakota taught the students how to use chalk pastel and blend colors. Elijah’s turned out really nice. Dakota framed this project for the students.
chalk pastel leafThis turkey was done with colored pencils. Dakota was teaching how to blend colors with colored pencils and using the pencils with different pressure to get different effects.
This acrylic pointillism project was fun for the kids. Each student could draw any picture they wanted for this project. Elijah drew a big fish.
This fall leaf project was created with water colors.

At the end of each class or while waiting for paint to dry on a project Dakota gives the students drawing lessons. He has been getting them to draw things out of certain shapes or using certain lines. I snapped a few pictures from Elijah’s sketch book. I can certainly tell Elijah’s drawing is improving and he is learning to control his pencil more.DSCF6918 DSCF6919 DSCF6920 DSCF6921 DSCF6922  DSCF6924 DSCF6925
