  2. I LOVE the idea of a collaboration between students, there is something wonderful about seeing so many different point of views in response to the same prompt, imagining what they might come up with in pairs like Lauryn said would be amazing. The other opportunity when so many artists come together, is learning from one another’s successes, hardships, and various techniques. Comments from one individual piece may very well be applicable to many! There is a lot of diversity between works which I respond to immediately. Keep working and learning from one another!! Such a fabulous group of responses!!

  3. I would love to see some kind of collaboration between students. I love seeing the links between subject matter translated so differently, like the dog collage vs the dog drawing and painting. What would happen if a portrait were done with the square brush strokes seen in the lighthouse painting? Or the pointillist leaves accenting the trees around the truck? Food for thought!

  4. Whether it’s high school work, college settings, or groups of artist in private crit groups,I love seeing the variation of different styles! It’s beautiful to see work that is more sculptural, more painterly, more illustrative, all coming from one group.
    A really wonderful sense of character is coming out here – from the quiet serenity of the leaves, (done with a really nice patient pointillism!) to the soft washes of atmosphere fading into the distance of the truck, to that wonderful and organic hands study! What’s really interesting to see is how each student can learn from each other – as I said before, the different styles is lending itself to different skill sets! This group could come up with some amazing ideas in a brainstorming session, I bet! Wonderful stuff.

  5. Some really lovely work! I appreciate the way the artist has handled all of the different surfaces in that landscape painting with the lighthouse – primarily the different brush strokes used in the sky, water and land. Very effective! I’m finding the flower painting very surprising and compelling, as well, and the portraits (human and dog, alike) also quite strong, technically.
