In this art class geared towards children ages 9 to 12, we will push the boundaries beyond simple art making and basic concepts. Your child will learn complex concepts such as abstraction, three dimensional drawing, and learn the fundamentals of realism. We will talk about important art movements and the artists who shaped them. Students in this class can expect to draw in pencil and charcoal, as well as paint with watercolor and acrylic. We will allow ourselves to be expressive and share our personal styles and encourage each other in a positive environment! Requirements: Your child should have access to a personal sketchbook that they bring to class. They are encouraged to draw, collage, and paint in their journal, and express their individual style. All materials with the exception of sketchbooks shall be provided.
