This past Thursday was the day all of the Gr 10 students in the province took the Literacy test.
It is a test that all high school students must pass before they can graduate high school. My school's "numbers"- the pass rate- have been getting better but they are still below the Board and provincial average.
Here are a couple of drawings that I did while I was supervising the test.
Some students get really stressed about the whole thing but this young man seems to be pretty comfortable with the situation. I guess he figures that he'll do it next year instead.
This is a time lapse drawing of a girl with restless legs. The rest of her sayed pretty still but her legs were unable to find a place to be comfortable.

I spent most of the day today at the ROM drawing. Here are a couple of the better ones.

I bought a used Wacom drawing tablet and a copy of Corel Painter X on eBay and have started playing with them. It will take a while to get used to both the tablet and the tools in Painter. I am doing this completely intuitively- no manuals- and feeling my way through.
