10:00am - 12:00pm

 Kit Lok Reports:  23 drawing enthusiasts (including 4 men) showed up for the first session of Let's Draw and Paint! We had to drag another table from outside into the room to ensure everyone has a working surface. Tom Sandor appeared not to be fazed by the huge turnout. The workshop began in earnest around 10.15am. Tom got us started with drawing circles, ovals, lines in varying thickness, then taught us to build different light to dark gray tones (values) using our graphite pencils, which we then applied to shading a simple bowl shape. We spent the second hour drawing a glass-topped, wick table lamp with a curved handle. Tom used a clip-on lamp to light it up. He came well prepared. Throughout the 2-hour session Tom showed drawing techniques on the flip chart and went around the room offering feedback and encouragement. At the end of the workshop, we admired a dozen framed works (drawings and water color) brought by one of the Seniors. He was quite an accomplished artist. After all the attendees have left, Tom, Tiana and I discussed logistics and a better set up for next week's session. Day One went very well indeed. Judging by the enthusiasm and earnest intent of the participants during the drawing session, I believe most of them enjoyed the workshop very much. A big thank you to SCOSA again for what will surely be another wonderful learning series.

 Tiana Wen Reports:   We got 18 students today. Students enjoyed the way Tom taught today. He guided us through drawing a baseball, creating the structure and shading the circle.  Some students asked him what we will draw next week. I think that means they are very excited for the new challenge. We also talked about going outside in front of the library to draw, maybe next month when the weather is better. The students can really see the texture and shadow from the outside light.
