Dare to Draw Assignment 24: Draw Someone Strong


Iron man? Xena Warrior Princess? One drawer decided to choose herself for a portrait of strength. We admire Hannah Potter’s gumption. This week, she drew two pictures.

Dare to Draw Assignment 22: Where Food Comes From

Dare to Draw Assignment 16: WILDCARD!


Today, our artists draw whatever they want! There’s a lot going on in Hannah Potter’s depiction of a busy and colourful highway. A starry and sunny sky rains and snows, and Hannah stands in the far right, looking a little hesitant – due to the weather, we imagine. (Typical of Halifax, according to Hannah’s father.)… Read More »
