A local artist entertained students at the The Goddard School of Katy last week when he conducted an art session, where he explained, and then demonstrated the two ways of sketching.
Larry Witte, former manager of Design Graphics and Printing, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he worked at a Houston branch, delighted the junior and pre-kindergarten students with his â€œmagical movesâ€ of art. Allowing each student to come up to his easel and â€œmake a markâ€ on the paper, he then created pictures of a dog, clown, house, space shuttle, and even beautiful roses.
â€œYou draw pictures in two ways. Number one, you do it while looking at the model; secondly, you imagine what you cannot see and draw it from your memory,â€ he told the students.
Recently retired and now residing in Fulshear, Witte â€œpaints for funâ€ and often makes sketches for his granddaughter, Cameron, 5, a member of the Goddard School class.
â€œShe (Cameron) knows my work. We do something everytime she visits me and my wife, Patty,â€ he says.
Witte enjoyed himself and promised to come back for another art teaching session. And the students? They took out their paints and paper, used their imaginations, and produced their own art products.
