Faculty painting and my Chalk board drawing

I led a faculty painting...the same one that is in the tutorial a few posts was very I took a picture. I take pictures for the camera is always around.

This Saturday we have our winter fair and I was asked to draw the curriculum board for the curriculum room. The Curriculum room is where all the classes have a table to display their work. New parents or anyone really can walk in there and a teacher is posted in the room to answer questions.

So....point is...I had to draw this picture and it was my first time drawing on a black board....well...real drawing anyway. I found it very challenging. It takes lots of layers and color accents and shadow etc.....the chalk falls off if you rub the wrong direction!

Your blackboard drawing is beautiful. I love the photos of all the teachers painting together. Amelia and I painted this together, thanks for the inspiration. Did you use a reddish color around the star? We couldn't figure that out, we just used two colors.
