Btw…50 Sheets of Paper – Click HERE to see the Album.

These drawings were created by the Advanced Drawing class with two stipulations, they needed to base their drawing on a sense of observation and they needed to use 50 sheets of paper. The rest was up to them. Our artists chose from a wide range of topics and ideas – all personal to them. Using direct observation, symbolism, and abstraction, our artists have created a wide variety of images all at various skill levels and approaches for you to enjoy.
