ART

Students can choose from a variety of art classes. In each class, the student chooses the subject from another painting, drawing, photograph or their own imagination. They draw (or trace) an outline of the subject on the canvas or silk. They will learn techniques for filling in their drawing with color, learning to blend, shade, highlight and create the illusion of texture.

Canvas Art


This class focuses on using mixed mediums this year such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, paper, glue, etc. Semester goals are 1 oil painting, 1 oil and acrylic combo, and one additional canvas. Bringing an extra large shirt to wear over your clothes is recommended as things could get a little messy! Classes are strictly limited to 6-8 students each, so please register early!

Foundations in Drawing 1&2 

(Ages 11+)
 

This is a one year course that focuses on mastering the skills to draw anything that can be observed. For much of the year, we will be using Betty Edward’s Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain for the beginning exercises and drawings in order to help students draw what they see, instead of what they think they see. The first semester we will focus on contour drawing (slow, in-depth drawing), then practice some gesture drawing (quick sketching), before touching a little on value (crosshatching) and color. The semester will end with a project incorporating all the techniques learned. The second semester we will learn more about value, color, texture and pattern before learning perspective and portraiture and doing a larger project in each. Over the course of the year, we will use such drawing media as chalk and oil pastels, charcoal, watercolor pencils, graphite and perhaps ink.
