Drawing and Painting (Ages 6 - 12)

Mondays, September 15 - October 27 (no class 10/13); 6 weeks 3:30pm - 5:00pm $115 (includes materials)

This class will help students develop their painting and drawing skills through weekly technique demonstrations, material experimentation and projects which focus on a variety of subject matter. In addition to exploring the ways in which value, line, color, perspective and design can enhance a work of art, we will also look to past and contemporary artists for inspiration. This will be a fun and relaxed introduction for students who feel less confident in their abilities as well as an opportunity for students with more experience to develop their skills.
