The Art Show


There was a student art exhibit at the college last week. It was an impressive display. There is a lot of talent on the campus. It also gave me many creative ideas that I am trying to file away in my head for future reference. Marina had three works in the show. On the left, she is standing next to her self portrait. Below, she is standing near one of her still life sketches.


Below is an ink drawing she did of shoes. Sorry these are so small. I forgot my camera and used my cell phone camera. My father's cell took the photos above.

I'm amazed at the work she's produced in her sketching class. I've never given her a lot of formal training in art, preferring my parents method. They let me explore my art talents on my own until I chose to go to an art centered high school. This was her first actual art class with a teacher that explained techniques. She really enjoyed this class, and that joy shines through in her drawing.

I think she's found her niche. I am in awe of her work.

Marina's got a great power of observation of detais, but for a beginer's expression, she's outstanding.
Love, Dad-Buelo

Why am I not surprised at Marina's talent? I enjoyed the Art Show immensely and was very impressed with the quality of the art. I especially love the portrait Marina did - her inner beauty shines through. Love, Grandma

She is so talented! I've been trying to encourage the "learning technique from a teacher" with my oldest via the opportunity to go to a 2-day camp in August, but he has no interest. :(
