Michelle has her Skills for Success final today, her Math final tomorrow and she has to turn in her two art project for her final plus her sketchbook. She was busy sketching all weekend long. She was sketching this morning before I took her to school. She went to school early so she could keep sketching (she needed to actually SEE something she was drawing in order to finish it). Art classes are dirty!
This is what Michelle’s hands have looked like, almost constantly, since she started dual enrollment classes last fall. She pretty much has given up on getting them clean, except at work (and even then…)
Here’s the sketch, not quite finished this morning.
She dropped her portoflio on the floor outside her bedroom and had to re-tape everything – the stress is getting to her.
And here is this semester’s self-portrait.
