Fourth session with Joshua    Sunday, July 22, 2018

Joshua can write his signature now, he is a little shakey but if he actually had to sign something he could!!!

Joshua worked with charcoal today looking at a simple still life. I darkend the room and we went over how light defines the form. He can now point out the core light, the reflective light and the highlight. He will need to practice with the charcoal, its nice as easy as one might think.

I had him work on his grid drawing from last week, he trace transfered it onto a piece of paper and will put in tone at home as part of his homework.

Joshua Jacober, third session    Sunday, July 15, 2018

We skipped our last Sunday meeting so Joshua could go on vacay with his family. I asked him to take his sketch book with him which he did. I also sent him home with some Zen Tangle tiles. I suggested he use a micro pen instead of pencil, he said but then he couldn/t erase and I said thats okay, try it anyway. It seems he likes the dark contrast of the black ink.

Joshua Jacober second session    Sunday, July 1, 2018

We discussed the homework that Joshua was able to work on and he showed me one of his compact drawings. He discovered that when he added color to the backside of the drawing and hold it to the light the color shows through and adds interest to the piece. Clever! So I told him we would explore some similar ideas with other papers and transparencies, I like his thinking!

Joshua Jacober, first session    Sunday, June 24, 2018

A delight to meet Joshua today. I did an overview of what I would like to see occur during our summer sessions and since we are meeting only once a week I am hoping we can continue once shcool begins. I showed Joshua some of the reference material I would be using to teach him about drawing: Betty Edwards, Drawing From The Right Side of the Brain, Betty Edwards, Drawing on the Artist Within, Nicolaides, The Natural Way to Draw, Zentangles for a beginner, The Joy of Zentangles, and Perspective, How to See it and How to apply it.
