Student of the Week - Emily Whalen

     I am starting a weekly series called 'Student of the Week'.  I want to showcase all my students and their latest artwork.  My first student I have chosen to highlight is Emily Whalen, who joined Developing Artists in May 2014 and started with the 'Design and Color' program.  Her first drawing I have posted is her mixed medium 'Circles and Triangles' project, completed in January, done with colored pencils and markers in the geometric shapes series.
     The second piece is the last drawing in the geometric shapes series where the goal was to create a landscape/seascape using only geometric shapes.  She used all colored pencils to finish this rendering called 'City' in March.  In this piece she incorporated the technique of scoring the surface before applying the colored pencil that ultimately shows off the lines as white against the dark sky.
    The last piece on display is the artwork she did for her invented texture project called 'Pyro' which she finished in June.  She created the image and then invented different textures and patterns to fill each of the shapes in color pencil.
