Springtime Zoom Art

These zoom classes are always evolving, and I want to keep them fresh. If the majority of students want to do another medium like watercolor or ink, and everyone has the materials, we can switch over. For now almost everyone has pastels and paper, so we will stick with it until and if we decide we want to change it up. If my wifi allows for it, I might find a spot outside to try a virtual plein air session instead of the reference photo for that day. Not sure if it would work.  We shall see.  Enjoy these mother and baby artworks, and scroll down for the SCHEDULE, LINKS & REFERENCE PHOTOS


Emma P made this lovely painting of Claws obviously in kitty heaven, and a quick sketch of the teacher. Thanks, Emma!

MATERIALS LIST – Don’t worry if you don’t have all of the materials. Some kids are using oil pastels and colored pencil with satisfying results.

  • Sketchbook and pencil for value study
  • Canson Mi Tientes paper or some other textured tinted drawing paper. If all you’ve got is white, that’s okay too.
  • Backing board and masking tape – you can use a piece of cardboard or foam core to tape the paper to.
  • Soft pastels with hopefully some dark darks.  Dick Blick has a cheap student set here: https://www.dickblick.com/items/20016-0489/  And if you’re willing to spend a little more, Jack Richeson pastels are a good value. The darker and more saturated you can find, the more expensive they are. https://www.dickblick.com/items/20016-0489/
  • Gum eraser
  • Vine charcoal
