NCSP 115: LIFE DRAWING FOR KIDS GRADES 3-5 $360.00

Course Description

GRADES 3-5: Do you love to draw and wish to learn how to draw what you see more realistically? This course is an exciting balance of learning how to see and how to capture contours, apply tones, and develop shading to make objects 'pop' off the page. With the basic understanding that in order to draw well, one must first learn how to see, students are engaged in fun looking exercises that challenge them to use their eyes and minds to collect information about the objects, people, and places around them. They will discover how to see the world in a fresh, new way! Different approaches, tools, materials and techniques are presented and explored using a diverse range of media, from pen and pencil to color explorations in pastel and paint.Instructor: Jamie Travers ’00 (Art Education M.A.) has been teaching in Y.P.S. for 15 years.

Using a balance of found images and created images, students are encouraged to create narrative works, with equal emphasis on treatment of the work's surface, choice and arrangement of images, and selection of media.
