"Draw what you see; See what you draw."

Students in Ms. Callens’ 9-12th grade art class are working to master the skill of drawing as a foundation to their art curriculum. In this week’s lesson, entitled "Draw what you see; See what you draw," students were given half of a symmetrical image and told to draw the matching half. The objective was to teach students to analyze what they see when viewing any image.
“This exercise potentially helps a young mind to develop intuitively in order to see proportion. It helps them to be self-analytical and provides a chance for the student to step away from the instructor,” Ms. Callens said. “The students have done such a wonderful job, I think they surprised themselves.”

Ms. Callens is a classically-trained, award-winning artist and is known for her stunning oil paintings in which she captures light exceptionally well. She was a resident artist in the gardens of Claude Monet in Giverny, France where she was awarded a fellowship and honorary exhibition.
