Esther Huser

Esther Huser is a Swiss artist who uses mimesis and photorealism to create realistic paintings of photographs she takes of nature, including fruits, vegetables, animals, and cabbage patches in particular!

Today, try your best to create a realistic drawing of a fruit, vegetable or animal!

This project is one of the virtual classes exploring women artists, hosted on Facebook Live from 1:30-2pm every Wednesday and Friday. Materials and instructions are posted here afterwards. Tune into the live classes to ask questions, give suggestions, and interact with other students who are stuck at home!
