November's edition of Youth Drawing 101 will get students in touch with their everyday surroundings, teaching them to record and illustrate their own history. Students will explore one- and two-point perspective, using a street scene from their hometown or downtown New Britain as reference. They will cut and paste paper and recycled objects to create collaged two-dimensional works.
