Art class draws Coy Pond

Professor Zingarelli’s Drawing 1 students spent their class period today sitting on the grass outside Frost, capturing a beautiful October day by drawing the autumn foliage surrounding Coy Pond.
In the previous class they drew “templates” in preparation for a lesson in depth, lines and horizons, explained Z. “The students are using different combinations of colors and textures in this exercise.”
The exercise was to draw the Coy Pond landscape over the templates using various materials, including colored pencils and pastels.
The students seemed to enjoy practicing their drawing skills outside the classroom, sketching and talking casually while flicking away the dragonflies that were attracted to the students’ colorful landscapes.
