I have been planning on making a post about student work from last semester for quite awhile now, but I have just gotten around to editing images from the end of the term. I now have a full catalog of work to reflect upon, as well as a couple months–and a few hundred miles–distance to guarantee objectivity.
I probably won’t have a whole lot to say about the work itself, but I will say in general, I was impressed by the quality of the work I got from students, even if I was sometimes stressed by their persistent procrastination. I was so thankful for the opportunity to teach at both Murray State and Austin Peay and I’m very happy I am able to share this selection of work with you. Many of these pieces are now welcome additions to my teaching portfolio. Thanks students!

We didn’t have models for almost three weeks into the semester. As a result we spend a good deal of time drawing facet head busts, animal skulls, and Ralph here. When we finally did get models, Krissy was by far our most reliable. Still, despite logistical mishaps, I feel like students got some really nice results.
