Let your children discover and develop their inner creativity, with several art projects and techniques to be explored over the course of 4 weeks. This class will meet the PA Standards 9.1.3.A/B/C/D/E/F, introducing young art students to a variety of mediums and styles, and brief experiences with art history and terminology, as they create original artwork that reflects both their own ideas and the influence of famous artists throughout history. All materials will be provided.
Join us as we spend three sessions focusing on the creative and expressive use of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. We will discuss the similarities and differences between representational, abstract and non-objective artwork. Each class participant will experience the freedom of deriving the essence of subject matter through the subtle use of simplification, color, contrast and space. Class members will work with a wide variety of materials to generate new ideas and fresh approaches to their chosen subject matter. Demonstrations will be done in acrylic yet students are welcome to bring their own fluid media as well as canvas or paper.
Whether you're a beginner looking to develop good habits or more experienced and looking to break some bad ones, this class can help. While demystifying the oil painting process, you'll work from direct observation to develop greater hand-to-eye coordination. Basically, “see it, paint it”. You will also learn step-by-step methods of color mixing, making form by blending, and many of the do's and don't s of composition. “Remember, oil painting is a simple process but not necessarily an easy one. Nothing worthwhile ever is.” Call for materials list. Check out Ski’s blog at http://skiholm.blogspot.com
