What makes a drawing look realistic? How do artists portray a 3-D scene on a 2-D panel? In this first drawing and watercolor painting workshop of 2019, Drawing from Life, we’ll explore the tangible world in terms of line, shape, and color.
Monday, August 12 – Thursday, August 15, 2019
3:30 – 5:30 pm
For ages 5 – 9
Each day, we will begin with drawing games to warm up, then we will experiment and explore materials and themes. We will work on still-lives using pencil, charcoal, and India ink. We study flora and fauna in the garden to capture their character on paper. Portraiture will have its time as well, and we will refer to the work of 19th and 20th century artists such as Kahlo, Cezanne, and Picasso to create self-portraits.
On Thursday, at the end of our class time the students will curate an art show for families and friends to enjoy from 5:30 – 6 pm. Throughout, we will share supportive, constructive ideas with each other in this special summer workshop.
