Freya’s art class

This year Freya has been taking drawing classes in our local town. I have been really impressed with her work.

This is really the first formal instruction and guidance that she has had. And that bit of guidance has made a huge difference.

Exhibit A:

self-portrait

Yesterday they did self-portraits. They did them by candlelight to trick themselves into really looking (instead of assuming you know what you look like). The drawing is done in charcoal.

Isn’t that amazing?

She made the crooked smile on purpose and then told me about how it created interesting shadows.
