Studio Art

Mr. Neitzke’s Studio Art class students are working on an all white still life assignment. The monochromatic still life drawing project is done in a low level of light environment and employs spot lights to increase the dramatic range of gray scale values. In an early stage of the project students use a view finder to assist art students in finding their composition.
