Boissiere House is a gorgoeus part of our Trinidadian architectural history. This painted lady as she is fondly called got lots of attention in class today. The Picassos were a little taken aback when they saw the detail involved but everyone just loved the overall look of the old house.
Of course we talked a little about it's history as well as a bit of it's present. Preservation works done on the property recently earned the Sammy family a historic restoration award! Thanks Sammy family :)
Then we got down to drawing this beauty. We started off with the roof lines and the put in major walls. Once these were in they got down to drawing in the basic shapes, putting in details in windows, doors and bushes. Of course this took up our class time so they'll be painted next week!
Thursday afternoon Picassos got started drawing Boissiere House today!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
