Life Drawing for Kids
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.

Portrait, Still Life, Landscape
For the students who wishes to hone drawing-from-life skills, this course provides a rich balance of skill-building and developing a unique artistic style in both black-and-white and color media. Using mostly dry media such as pencil, charcoal, and pastels, students utilize the rich urban landscape, mirrors for self-portraiture, and objects to explore the varied qualities, textures, tones, and proportions of both natural and man-made forms.
