WEDNESDAYS, 3:15-4:15pm (Ages 10-14) 10 Weeks: Oct. 5 - Dec. 14 (No Class Nov. 23)
In this Studio Art class, students will receive focused instruction in painting and develop techniques using a variety of high-quality painting materials including watercolor, acrylic, and gouache paints, as well as acrylic markers and watercolor pencils. Students will practice painting in a range of styles and will observe the works of well-known artists– both classic and contemporary– to inspire personal painted masterpieces! While painting on diverse surfaces (paper, wooden panel, canvas), they will learn about values and textures, color theory and color mixing, and improve their brush control. Completion of artworks will be rolling, usually every 2-3 weeks. All artworks will be collected to take home as a portfolio at the end of the session.
Learning: Acrylic, Gouache, and Watercolor Painting, Color Theory, Brush Control, Texture & Blending Techniques, Focal Point & Composition, Realism, Impressionism, Contemporary Art, Art History
Registration is for a full session, not individual classes. Registrations are accepted through the fourth (4th) Art Class, with prorated tuition for the remaining classes in the session.
