Artist Richard Seidel taught this session on observation. Richard shared a video of his work with the students. They learned that drawing from life can provide an endless source of inspiration. Where we travel, who we meet, and even how we see things help define who we are.
Each student was given a sketchbook, a set of watercolors, and pens. They then learned how to fill their book with drawings of what surrounded them. Students began to draw each other, the projects that were on the table that day, and even some art supplies. Some students branched out and drew the images that had formed in their imaginations.
