Introducing Greenleaf Artist Marie!

This past summer we welcomed Marie to the studio!  Marie is 8 years old and starting the third grade this fall.  Marie loves to draw and her goal was to add more details to things that she creates.  We set about learning some basic "artist tools of the trade" that she could put into her "toolbox" to use.  Color mixing, value, direct observation of the subject, contour drawing, paint application and use of different brushes, different surfaces (canvas, wood, BFK Reeves 100% cotton paper), painting, collage and clay work ~  all experimented with and with great success! Over the summer Marie created 7 projects ~ here they are!  Enjoy!  Great job Marie!
