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.

NCSP 233: Understanding Dimension: Drawing through Conceptual Sculpture (Grades 6-8) $375.00

Course Description

Location: St. Paul's Schools. Grades 6-8.This course provides young artists with an innovative and hands-on way to gain a more complex understanding of dimension (2D and 3D). Students explore realistic and abstract drawing skills through the development and construction of conceptual sculpture. With the premise that students understand dimension more fully if they create 3D objects, then draw them in 2D, students first become familiar with actual space within three-dimensions by building individual and collaborative 3D forms as installation works. Once built, students draw the sculptural forms using a variety of media.
