Foundations in Drawing

(Ages 11+)
 

Teacher: Melanie Kidder

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.

Curriculum covers an entire year and does build. Students are discouraged from signing up half-way through and can only do so with teacher permission.

Advanced Drawing

(Teacher Permission Only)

(Ages 11+)
 

Teacher: Melanie Kidder

In this class, students will revisit many of the aspects learned in the Foundations class with greater depth. The initial emphasis will be on drawing people and portraits both slow and detailed and also quick, capturing action. Students will be drawing each other as well as volunteer models. They will learn to find the planes of the face and understand the features more anatomically, for stronger, more lifelike drawings. We will also look at landscapes, going outside to do both quick sketches and more detailed drawings, using a variety of marks. Additionally, students will learn how to create mood with value and color. Perspective drawing will be touched on, looking at dramatic views such as three point perspective and the creation of deep space. Along the way, students will learn the importance of composition and creating a pleasing design. They will create cut paper story collages as the basis for strong narrative drawings, learning how color and design convey meaning.

Digital Photography- Basic Techniques

(Ages 13+)

Teacher: Shea Whaley

 

I teach the students how to frame an image and use exposure, F/stops, shutter speeds, lighting techniques, white balance, and depth of field to create a stunning image.  The class is designed for students who have little to no experience with using an SLR camera, but this course could also be used as a refresher course for someone looking at perfecting skills.  Students would need a SLR digital camera to make the course worthwhile.

The students will also help assist in taking pictures for the yearbook.

 

Materials Student Needs to Bring to Class:  SLR digital camera
