Introduction to Drawing and Painting (ages 9-12)
This class is an ideal way to introduce young artists to a variety of
different materials, techniques, and the fundamental principles of
drawing and painting. Students will strengthen established skills, as
they have fun developing and exploring new understandings in color,
perspective, and composition through still lives, photographic
references, and imagination. Demonstrations and individual attention
given. No previous experience required.
Wednesdays, Nov. 30 - Dec. 14, 4 - 5:30 pm
