Kids Art focuses on learning shape, size, colors, counting and hand steadiness in creative ways. Kids art help promote new ideas while being inspire by real life. This helps young kids build a visual library of everything in the world! A visual library is collection of memories that can be stored in one’s mind. For an examples, if we observed a pigeon and draw it, the more we can understand it and store that information in our mind! This class is hands-on, fun and casual, while still learning techniques such as color mixing, blending and story-telling.
This class is recommended for kids between Pre K – 3rd Grade for 1 hour.
Advanced Art focuses on classical techniques in drawing for more serious students. Our students will first learn about drawing pencils. They are completely different from school pencils! The extreme basics of drawing is shape, proportions, value and perspective so we first help students develop a strong core foundation to prepare for more ambitious projects. After getting a good understanding of sketching, students will learn from master reference books of still life. Learning from others’ artwork help students learn what makes the art successful. Steadily, students can try different mediums such as acrylic paint, oil pastel and printmaking.
Once a core understanding is developed, students will then be able to create their own original art by setting up their own still life to draw! A still life is a setup of objects, strategically placed to look interesting with a narrative. Students will also pull from multiple references to create a one-of-a-kind art piece that represents them. Students can get as creative, using any medium they wish.
