Second graders and drawing, not at the same time!

Had the pleasure of watching/hearing my Great Granddaughter's second grade class perform in concert last night.  Kids are so entertaining!  Some are so serious and some could care less and there is a clown in every class.


Here we are...four generations!  Me, on the right, my daughter Leigh,  her daughter Staci and Staci's two daughter's, Emma and Lucy!  We topped the evening off with Baskin-Robbins ice cream!  Fun!

I am taking a drawing class from an excellent teacher, Lori Wallace-Lloyd at the art center in Newberg. Every drawing class starts with spheres, this class was no exception.  I have not done much drawing with charcoal in's fun but is taking getting use to.  Here are some sample practice pieces I've done at home.

What do rocks, sea shells, and globes have in common?  They are all spheres and ripe for practice!

What a great photo of your family! You look way to young to have created all these people! Hehehe. Seriously! You can draw like nobody's business too!!!

Lovely drawings. And I agree with the previous comment...way too young to have great grandchildren. :)

You must have had your first baby at 12! And your daughter must have hers at 12, too (grin). Shows your good genes, at least.

Love the spheres. Even though you would think they are simple shapes, for someone who can't even draw a basketball correctly, your spheres are incredible. I know one thing: your students had a fantastic teacher.
