Summer Art SeriesThe Discovery (ages 9-12) and Expressions (ages 13-17) Art Series are a way to foster the passion for art in children in a fun, relaxed atmosphere where their talent and creativity can shine! The series provides more in-depth fundamentals on not only painting but also on how to create, compose, shade, highlight and blend objects to make your painting come alive.
Each 2-day session teaches foundational skills to create amazing paintings. The session fee is $80, which covers both days and all supplies. Students must attend Day 1 in order to attend Day 2 as we build upon the skills taught on Day 1. Class size is limited so there are no refunds for cancellations with less than 48 hours notice before the Day 1 class.
The DISCOVERY SERIES will inspire the inner artist in children ages 9-12. The first 2-day session, Rainy Day Frog, will focus on brush skills, paint consistency, lining, pressure and blending. The second 2-day session, Organic Robot, will focus on previous skills and utilizing a value scale (gray scale), shapes, lighting, rendering objects and texturing.
The EXPRESSIONS SERIES will inspire the inner artist in teens ages 13-17. The first 2-day session, Rainy Day Frog, will focus on brush skills, blending, drawing, shading and painting basic forms. The second 2-day session, Going Organic Robot, will focus on previous skills and highlighting from a light source, drawing and rendering objects, composition balance and texturing.
These sessions will be taught by Ruthie M., our professional artist who created the Discovery and Expressions curriculum and classes.
