This course will focus on learning art in a fun way, within a supportive and relaxed creative environment. It will help to develop skills in drawing and painting, as we examine line & shading, perspective, composition, and figurative drawing. We will also look at different materials, such as clay and plaster, as various craft techniques are explored. Every week we cover a different artist, such as Picasso, Van Gogh, or Cezanne, to introduce their work and bring in elements of art history. Students will then learn how to present their own work, and how to effectively positively comment on the art pieces of others. We will also learn how to overcome obstacles and artistic blocks that can halt creativity. In a warm and encouraging atmosphere, this course will boost confidence and foster creativity. Being in a real artist’s working studio environment is fun for the children, as they learn what it means to be an artist. This is a small class and a nurturing environment so that they have the capacity to let their imagination and creativity blossom. PLEASE NOTE there is no class on 17th of February.
