Teenage Life Drawing

The first time I introduced my 10:15 Club to Life Drawing, they squirmed uncomfortably at the idea, turned their (beautiful) drawings around in shame and left all their work behind afterwards. So I vowed to do it with them once a term. This was the second time, and they accepted their fate with resignation, creating an incredibly array of drawings. It was incredible how they opened up to the idea of drawing freely, working on a large scale, using an array of techniques from masking tape to graphite to ink and sticks. This is Micol's work - she has transformed herself into an incredibly talented artist this year!
