I had a relatively busy but immensely enjoyable week! First, I was honoured to have been given the opportunity to give a short keynote on “Assessing Learning in Real Time (A.L.E.R.T.)” at the morning segment of the Singapore Polytechnic Excellence in Education and Teaching Convention (EETC) 2020 on Thursday.

As you can see, I have started on my bullet journal (BuJo) but the whole process still took a long time to move forward. I was fortunate that it was coming to the end of August when I decided to embark on this adventure so I had the opportunity not only to lay out a…
This week we tackled inking and cross hatching in preparation for the final DRAW assignment. As the accompanying images show, students had to rough out the subject in pencil before drawing over it with a pen. Photo was referenced here.
Decided to do another piece at Holland Village. This time I sat on the sidewalk across the street and sketched for close to 2 hours. Pen on A4 sketchbook.
I thought the students could benefit from more practice drawing trees today so I found some pictures online of the types that can be seen around Singapore. Pencil on A3 paper.
This week we spent 2 sessions (around 4 hours) drawing a tree. Pencil on A3 paper.
This is my attempt at one of the set-ups for this week’s DRAW module still life test. Students are given approximately 6 hours to complete. Pencil on A3 paper.
As preparation for the DRAW test next week, students were tasked to depict a set objects made of different materials: metal, glass and fabric. Pencil on A3 paper.
This week for DRAW students had a couple of hours to draw a set of objects placed under a single directional light. The emphasis is still on proportion and values. Done in pencil on A3 paper.
This was an exercise for my 1st year students to gauge their drawing skills at the start of the semester. They had about 1hr 30 min to complete it as best they can. I thought it would be good practice and joined in. Done in pencil from a picture reference. 🙂
