DOES NOT INCLUDE:
On occasion, your child will be asked to bring in a special item to help with the lesson. Some examples of these items(though not limited to this list) include:

- Found objects (for stamping, drawing, painting, etc.)
- Food items (for stamping, drawing, painting, etc.)
- Magazines (for collages, inspiration, etc.)
FOCUS OF CLASS:
This class starts out with more in depth drawing techniques using paint, pencil, and pastels (chalk and oil) that touches on lighting, shading, blending, mixing, and layering. We will focus in on drawing facial features with portraits and self portraits.
It is important that we start to get the art basics into place. We will work on proportion (as it applies to people, animals, and objects) as well as perspective (one point and two point).
An exciting aspect of this class is learning to turn our young artists into sculptors using modeling clay. Once dried, students will have the opportunity to paint their sculptures as well.
Your child will be provided with 1 medium-sized canvas board that will be used for their final painting. For their final painting, they will be asked to bring in their own image to paint.
For those students who have taken this class before, you are welcome to take the class again. Although there will be some repetition on techniques (colour wheel, shading, etc.) the activities to follow will be different and therefore, still enjoyable for everyone.
*Disclaimer: Some of our drawing books include nude drawings. These are typically used in learning human proportion, which may be discussed in this class. Although we will not be drawing nude figures, your child may see these drawings.
