Art Beat: March 2015


By Kitty King

Featured Artist: Lauren Kordas

“I had a lot of fun creating this charcoal piece because we had just learned how to lay out portraits in class. The process was fresh in my mind and the drawing flowed. I didn’t think very much about it and just focused on incorporating what I had learned onto the paper until I stepped back and was happy with what I had done.”
