Light, and the absence thereof, creates line (and other observations)

        Line

                Texture

As an exhibition, Fresh Arts embodies each of these artistic characteristics beautifully. Observational drawing exercises of Clement’s sculptures provided fifth and sixth grade visual artists with an opportunity to strengthen their skills in each of these areas. Students studied the “shadow drawings” created by the heft of metal under lights that were strategically placed to “draw” attention to their arcs and curves of the sculpture. They noted tonality in monochromatic objects through shading and palette design. Artful compositions were formed as students selected areas to feature in their drawings. The combined efforts of looking, rendering and personalizing helped bring students deeper into the artwork and themselves as artists.
