The Blank Canvas Splattered Art Classes lean towards a deeper understanding and strengthening of Fine Art Skills. While the purpose of art encompasses personal expression, how do we get there if we don’t hone in on our actual knowledge and skills? This said, we will learn at our own pace, using subject matters personalized to each individual student (ex. If your student loves nature, she/he will draw/paint nature using examples and references from professional artists!) Some art history and art appreciation will be taught as it corresponds to specific lessons.
The school year is broken down into (3) 10-week sessions. Classes in the beginning of the year begin outdoors as weather permits.
All classes will take place in Somerdale on Thursday mornings from 11am-12:30pm
Some students may wish to commit to a shorter class time…in that case, parents may take their child at 12pm.
DRAWING WITH CARBON AND COLOR PENCIL, CHARCOAL & PASTELS
Learn form, shading/hatching techniques, page layout, color palette/complimentary colors) while drawing individual pieces.

Depending on students’ illustrative style, they will complete one practice drawing and one final detailed, colored drawing to be matted for the art show.
PAINTING WITH ACRYLIC & WATERCOLOR PAINT
Exercise use of colors, blending, brush techniques while painting an individual piece of your choice.
