I hope you are having a great spring break! I have been excited to take it easy for a few days! I am also excited to focus on drawing skills this month. Each class will focus on one subject and hopefully your little artist will come home making big strides on how to draw more realistically! All classes are $20 and open to any age 5+ unless specifically noted.

Friday, April 14th 2:00-4:00

Animals-we will learn how to accurately map out and proportion basic types of animal bodies. Then we explore how to show the details that bring a sketch to life. We use artist grade colored pencils and the fun techniques that can change their texture to make animal portraits on bristol.

Wednesday April 19th 2:00-4:00 Advanced class (ages 11+)

Figure drawing- We will learn the correct proportions to draw the human figure, then how to manipulate them to stylize for manga, comics, and forced perspective drawing. We will use graphite and artist grade colored pencils to create several styles of work.

Saturday, April 22nd 2:00-4:00

Faces- We will focus on each facial feature and how to realistically draw it. Then talk about how to observe the little differences that make each face unique. We will do self portraits with graphite on bristol.

Friday, April 28th 2:00-4:00

Stylization- We will use the skills we have gained over the month to help us “break the rules!” In this class students will learn how to observe reality then manipulate it to create cartoon, manga, and kawaii, as well as how stylization is used in fine art. We will work with a variety of media.
