Drawing & Art Program
The children who attend our art classes come from very different artisitic backgrounds. We happily welcome beginners, and our drawing class is taught by an instructor in a friendly manner that enables all students to feel comfortable about learning real art skills.
The children will begin with simple expessive lines and shapes, with focus on fundamental drawing and painting skills. When students move on to a more advanced level, they will learn about shading, textures, light shadows and perspective. Not only will they experience a variety of drawing materials like graphite, charcoal and pastels while learning, but they will be given the opportunity to explore the unique quality of painting media like acrylics and oil pastels. This will be introduced to them when they learn about the color wheel, basic washes, and mixing colors.
Although the curriculum is structured around these goals, each student is given a variety of projects which help to keep the classes fun and very diverse.
