More Student Work

I just want t brag about my class. We are working on Lesson 6 although there are several students who are a little behind. This has been so much fun for me. It is really exciting to see the work that each person is producing through the small exercises and to see how each student has improved so much since we first started. There are a lot of ideas floating around in this group!

Many of the exercises are only 4 x 6" and the larger ones are generally about 8 x 10". This way the exercise is not so overwhelming!

I am posting some of the exercises that come from different lessons so each one is in response to my request for them to compose something using specific guidelines. I'm not going to tell you all of those as it would take me forever to get the right lesson with the right image! So, just enjoy what they have been doing!

And, if interested, my next class in Better Art by Design starts on May 12. You can reach the sign up by going to my website or clicking the class on the right hand of the blog.

I have twenty students in my class. I like to keep the number down as I spend a lot of time doing very specific critiques on the work each student does. They are able to read the critiques on everyone's work. Part of their last lesson is to critique their own work!

Aren't they good!?

It is really impressive to see the work all together like this.

Sandra Wyman said...

It's a wonderful class - and as Gerrie says seeing the work together shows you how good the work is. I've found it highly inspirational not to mention confidence-building.

Wow, Liz, I'm so impressed with your students! And by extension, with your teaching skills. Whoof!

Rayna said...

Cool, LizzieB! Looks like your classes are a bit hit - and your students are having impressive results. Any Gerrie I know?

I could just say "ditto" to all the other comments, but as I try to finish the last lesson, instead of just letting it happen, I am actually resisting that and seriously thinking about the design principles. Liz not only taught a great class, she made it stick! Bravo, Liz.

Hi Liz,
Just saw your "Good to be Green" piece in Tillamook and loved it! I know you agonized over it, but it is terrific.
