Pencil Sketching with JCSP
Category : Post Primary
Some of our second years enjoyed the Pencil Sketching pencil course with talented Deaf artist Johnny Corcoran. Johnny Corcoran has a passion for pencil sketching and he has showed our students some of his amazing artwork on the human eye, on animals such as elephants, and famous portraits, for example Morgan Freeman. Our students were in awe of the talented artist artwork. Johnny explained to the students that sometimes a finished pencil sketching can take up to a total of 30 hours!
Today he showed our students how to use a pencil to draw light and shade and how light can cast a shadow behind an object. Johnny also showed the different shades from lightness to darkness using different pencils such as 2H, 3H, 4H, 2B, 3B, 4B and a very dark pencil 8B! Thank you to initiative coordinator John Canning for implementing this initiative.
