Mr. Delahunt's '05-'06 Fourth Grade "c-group" Students' Gallery of

Drawings of Animals

Each artist chose a photograph of an animal for subject matter, and made a triptych of three drawings.

Each was made in three approaches:

At one end: realism — a natural representation of people, places, and/or things in a work of art — much as we see the world normally or in photographs.

At the opposite end: abstraction, or nonobjective — often exaggerating or simplifying forms. The central figure: somewhere inbetween realism and abstraction. Each triptych was drawn with colored pencils on paper 6 x 18 inches.

We hope you enjoy this online exhibition of our work!
