Recess Sketching

I’ve recently started an unofficial art club with some kiddos during recess.  We’ve had about 20 minutes to sit and draw whatever comes to mind.  Admittedly, I’ve been noodling a little after school, still itching to draw.  The content is random – whatever is falling off the pencil.  Though the ninja turtle came by request, and who could deny a little Michelangelo?

I’ve relished the opportunity to sketch freely.  Recently, I’ve been clickity-clacking on my keyboard more than drawing, and the kids provide an ideal cohort/crit group for some care-free paper scratching.

Here are my sketches from the first week of the group.
