All this one needs is my signature block. Once again, working from life, Alla Prima with a fresh pudgy donut from Dunkin Donuts, this time it was a demo at the wonderful Furnace Brook Middle School in Marshfield, MA. This school is lucky enough to have a Parent Organization that subsidizes the children's art education by funding an Artist In Residence Program the first Friday of every month. Two artists are enlisted to produce work, and expose the children to different types of artistic processes. My plan was to do my little Daily Painting, and alongside it, let the children paint one slightly larger, 8x8 inches. They are enthusiastic, curious and polite.
I hope I am not boring you with this, but here we are at a relatively early stage. I set up the 'guard rails' of the drawing, so none of us would go 'off the road' too much.
Each child got to put a couple of strokes of oil paint on the panel.
And below - the finished product - I think they did a heck of a job - I better watch out for these guys!
