Eyes and Eyes, Teen class

I showed the students a short video on eye structure. Then we talked about the important parts of the eye and practiced drawing eyes from photos of themselves. I gave them a list so that they could go over the parts to make sure every part was there and in the right place. Then they drew their eyes on canvas board and used acrylic washes to show the shadows. Then they could paint the rest in anyway they liked. Nice lesson in observation, value and eyes. And the bonus is that you can recognize each person just by the eyes. Nice job!
