Jamie W. takes her artwork to the next level


Wells takes a picture of junior Destiny Jackson to use as her reference picture for the artwork. “I told her to look like a model and she did [that pose] and it looked good,” Wells said. “I liked the hands. It keeps the composition really interesting.”

Always experimenting with different medium, junior Jamie W. decided to challenge herself by using charcoal to create a serious artwork in a short amount of time.

“It was a learning experience using charcoal in this drawing,” Jamie W. said. “My inspiration was an artist named David Jon Kassan. I love his artwork. He uses toned paper with white and black charcoal and I never done that before so I wanted to try it out. It’s really fun.”  

She used junior Destiny J. as her model for her piece.

 “[Destiny] has an interesting face and she’s a really great friend so I wanted to draw her,” Jamie W. said. “I hope to enter it into a competition one day, maybe.”
