More artworks from Amy Wilson’s foundation drawing class

Here’s the second half of our two-part series featuring student works from Amy Wilson’s spring 2017 session of Drawing II (FID-1135). The images below are taken from the narrative project, in which each student was instructed to interview someone and create ten drawings based on that person’s life story. As with the alphabet project that I covered in the last post, the results were pretty diverse in their subjects, use of materials, and approaches to visual storytelling.
