St. George Grange, Wiley’s corner. Adult art class drawing display, 9/23/19

Once you notice that a simple building almost appears as if it is a face,  faces start staring out at you from so many buildings you see. Hard not to see them. I see this building as a kind of jack-o lantern face. That porch is the jagged toothed grin.

Students worked from color photos of the building. We practiced isolating and trying to capture the various dark shapes of the roofs. One can imagine them as little origami creatures with wide open triangular mouthes. 

Class  also worked from copies of the photo converted to an outline image with superimposed grid.
