Any two hours between 4pm - 8pm

 

 

   

This classical drawing course was designed for young people in grades 9 to 12 (12 to 19 years old).

They will increase their visual literacy by applying a drawing process, learning new techniques for identifying and correcting drawing errors, and practicing their hand-eye coordination. Students will learn these drawing skills by re-creating a Bargue plate as carefully as possible as they learn proportion, values, and other essential drawing skills. These are time-honored methods of learning to draw what you see in training for future art endeavors. Many famous artists such as Picasso, NC Wyeth, G. Parrish trained in Bargue Drawing.

Any two hours between 4pm - 8pm

 

   

Learn to paint realistically with the oil paint medium. Everyone will work at their own learning pace. You can paint a still life arrangement or paint a mastercopy portrait. We will look at different techniques from the Renaissance to the 19th Century, including the Flemish technique and the technique of Bouguereau. Working in sight-size and from life, we will examine the process beginning with the preliminary composition on paper in graphite then the transfer to canvas. Discover or review the underpainting by first blocking in the background and working on big shapes. Students will learn how to mix accurate values and colors and how to create a realistic sense of dimensional form. This class is appropriate for 10 years old through teens.
