Landscape? Still life? Anything???
Dear art teacher,
Could we please move on from naked people? I'm not very good at drawing them. See there how the torso is way too long and one leg is way too skinny and one knee looks all wonky and one arm looks broken and I really can't do toes for the life of me and I never know quite what to do when I get to the bewbies. Couldn't you maybe set up a nice vase with flowers in it? I don't know. Anything really. Thanks.
P.S. I know you probably want to choke me every time I walk into class but please be kind and try to remember that I had never even picked up a piece of charcoal or a pastel or drawn anything more than little daisies and hearts in the margin of my math notes and to do lists until the first class a few weeks ago.
