Art Starters: Drawing & Painting

Love Your Place: Landscapes

Spring is finally (officially) here, and it is time to get the art outside! In this class we learn to create landscapes from observation and memory. We’ll go over several tricks artists can use to make landscapes look more realistic. Plus, we’ll learn when it is time to leave realism behind and go for dramatic effect! We will work outside, create a 3-Layer Landscape in three dimensions, and a high-contrast pastel painting that will stand out from across the room.

 

Our most popular class, Drawing & Painting, helps students build their visual vocabulary and technical abilities. Learning to draw new things gives young artists more options for their art work. Developing new techniques with paint can be the difference between a muddled mess and a brilliant piece of artwork. And of course we try out a variety of media, such as ink, watercolor, acrylic, and charcoal.

Masters in the Making: Drawing & Painting

Out There: Landscapes

From van Gogh to Claude Monet to Thomas Cole to Sesshū Tōyō, many of the most famous artists were masters of landscapes. Every kid has been drawing and painting landscapes since they were able to pick ups pencil, but in this class we learn about the nuances that have fascinated artists throughout their careers. We will work outside, create a mixed-media weaving and painting, and a Landscape: Extreme Foreground Edition production. Which is a landscape with an extreme foreground.

 

Drawing & Painting for older students focuses on more advanced techniques and concepts. We will learn the skills needed to make drawings more realistic and the tricks that bring paint under control. As in the Art Starters program, students will have the chance to work with a wide variety of media.

Spring Plant It

It’s the time for plants to get out there and do their thing! We will make planters out of several different materials, including clay and learn to paint a landscape from observation. At the end, the students will be able to bring their plants home and watch them grow!

Eyes on Art: Modeling Forms in Paint

Adults will increase their mastery of handling the brush to model forms with paint. Using tightly controlled color palettes, students will learn to render value accurately and use brush strokes to create convincing illusions of space in their paintings.

 

In this class we will delve into the foundations of creating strong works of art. From the classic elements and principles to focused observation, this class is intended for students who want to push their art making skills.


Ages 14+. Each session includes all art materials for class, although students will be expected to have some supplies for working at home. $125.

Multimedia: Story Boxes

 

cornell-box

There are only a few kinds of stories – those founded in memory, those founded in imagination, and stories that are a blend of the two. Inspired by Joseph Cornell’s iconic work, students will create a shadowbox containing multimedia assemblage (real things glued into the sculpture), collage, and painting that will tell a story.

 

This project-based class will explore a particular medium or combination of media in depth. At the end, students will have one complete project they can be truly proud of.

Homeschool: Art in Nature, A Science Class

 

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists and curiosity for young scientists. This class, involving art projects, nature walks, and natural science, melds the two. Kids will explore concepts such as patterns in nature, decomposition, and buoyancy while creating their own works of art.

Eyes on Art: Still Life

 

Students will learn to use observation and to extrapolate from basic forms. We will discuss foundational challenges such as value range and composition. By the time the end of the class, students will have the tools to begin drawing anything they can see.

 

In this class we will delve into the foundations of creating strong works of art. From the classic elements and principles to focused observation, this class is intended for students who want to push their art making skills.

Eyes on Art: Color Theory

 

Choosing colors can be among the artist’s toughest challenges. Color theory is the study of the relationship between colors and the effect they have on the viewer and the composition of the art work. We will be mixing paints, experimenting with colors, and using what we learn to make compelling paintings.
