To start off the evening, students gathered together to explore shadows in a fun way by practicing hand puppets.
Here we are making pigs!
Students then were introduced to how shadows can be accomplished by using different values to make objects appear 3-Dimensional when drawn on a 2-Dimensional piece of paper.
They practiced creating value by making color gradients...
...and then put their new knowledge to work in practicing drawing 3D still life.
For me, this workshop was bittersweet as it was my last with Thai Freedom House. But I was proud to see how much the students have progressed and been able to build upon techniques week by week. ARI has welcomed a handful of new volunteers this week, and they are already excitedly preparing for the next workshop with Thai Freedom House, Introducing Color.
