This is a more traditional technical art class for Kids who are already showing great promise in art & who absolutely adore to draw and paint. In this valuable course, we will first begin by getting familiar with the genre of classical drawing & painting- starting with practical drawing exercises (in preparation for painting) and a comprehensive introduction to drawing vocabulary & tools. Exploratory work in shading, perspective, value & light source.
Discussions & demo on composition, negative space & proportion- these classic exercises help student’s learn how to see shape and form. Student assignments will be based on this content & discussed with instructor as we progress. Learn color theory, application, brushwork and explore different styles & genres: abstraction vs. realism, which will also encourage student’s to delve into their own personal style.
We will look at work from well known artists, past & present, study their techniques & special effects- to serve as inspiration & channel into students work. Students will be encouraged to combine media and push their work to new levels! In depth personal critiques will be provided throughout the course, and final projects will culminate in a finished painting with students own personal themes and favorite subject matter.
MATERIALS: Materials are included but NOT LARGE CANVAS. If you wish to work on a large canvas, you must purchase prior to class & bring it with you to your first session. Please note you may need multiple canvas over the duration of your course, your instructor will advise.
