NCSP 142: Painting The World Around Me (Grades K-2) $360.00

Course Description

(Grades K-2) For the young artist who loves to draw and wishes to dive into a world of color, this course journeys from mark-making with dry media into the world of paint and other wet media. From looking and sketching exercises to experimentation with color, students will explore how color can be used for expressive purposes. Paint media such as watercolor and tempera paint will be used to explore how colors interact to create various effects, mixed colors, and textures. Emphasis will be on noticing details about the surrounding world and finding ways to communicate experiences with brush-strokes, lines, and splashes of color.

NCSP 239: Portfolio Development for High School Entry (Grades 6-8) $360.00

Course Description

Grades 6-8. This intense studio workshop begins with a review of students’ current art portfolios, with discussion about what a well-rounded high school portfolio might look like. Students keep a reflective journal and sketchbook as they identify areas to strengthen in their artwork. Working independently with the instructor, students then develop a plan for tailored art problems intended to highlight skills and flesh out their portfolios for presentation. This course is especially designed for students who need a portfolio for entrance into high school but is also open to those who wish to employ a more independent course of study.
