Expand creative thinking, explore possibilities for imagery, create paintings full of wonder and meaning. Inspiration will draw from word and visual prompts that stimulate the child’s thought and emotional responses.
Nature, self, relationships and the five senses will be explored. Classes will alternate, even days will be devoted to working drawing and odd days will be devoted to creating paintings. Awareness of the fundamentals of art composition will be seamlessly taught in an intuitive, child driven way.
Supplies provided: Ebony pencils, colored pencils, watercolor, pastels, acrylic paint and collage materials. Students will build heavy paper portfolio cases to take created works home, at the end of the course.
