Art Night Monkey Business

As I’ve mentioned, we’ve been using Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun by Carla Sonheim on Wednesday’s Art Night. This week’s focus was on color. We each pre-selected four drawing utensils (markers, pastels, charcoal, etc.) and then set out to draw a monkey! Here are the results.

I’m getting Joey out of the way first since he drew his monkey with his right (non-dominant) hand (which was NOT part of the exercise), quickly (also not part of the exercise) and half-heartedly (yes, not part of the exercise). I daresay he would not appreciate these qualities in the college students in the classes he teaches.

And now, I’ll leave you to dream of monkeys.
