Winter is here and animals celebrate the season differently in various parts of the world. In this class kids will be introduced to animals and their unique habitats in the air, on the ground, underground, in the water and explore the winter theme with drawing, painting, art collage, pen and ink, and print making.
Want your child to shine in Language Arts? Learn how to become a better writer? Through fun, interactive activities, students will learn about character development, plot, setting, dialog, point of view, word choice, symbolism, and theme, and create a personal portfolio of their work. Returning and new students welcome.
An introduction to figure drawing techniques and concepts, with an emphasis on representational drawing and expression. Artists Yuki Toy and Timothy Robert Smith help students build confidence in creating spatial illusions on a 2-dimensional surface and develop their creative voice by working from live models, photographs and memory. Working from a live model, students understand basic anatomy — bone structure, muscle mass, proportion – and techniques for capturing this knowledge through drawing. By the end of this course, students learn to communicate mood, emotion and thought through line, gesture and image.
A hand-building clay exploration class for beginners to intermediate students where you will create functional art – ceramic pieces that you can use in your everyday life. Continuing students will build upon the skills they have already learned and discover new finishing techniques, while new students learn the basics of slab rolling, coiling, and pinching.
