Our November 11 meeting began with the students continuing to work on the 3D projects they started last week using Bristol board, masking tape, and glue.
It is the beginning of November and T/AP is glad to welcome our second artist, Iris Bechtol! Starting the day with brief introductions, Iris delivered a short presentation about her work to familiarize us with her thought processes and methodologies.
T/AP students spent their day with artist Heyd Fontenot in the lab working on a set of final drawings. After Heyd explained the assignment, students spent the rest of the class time rendering a portrait as the culmination of their figure-drawing skills so far.
The month of October has been a busy one for us here at the Modern’s Teen/Artist Project! Acclaimed artist Heyd Fontenot has been working with our students to develop and hone their figure-drawing skills in conjunction with Lucian Freud: Portraits.
