Visual Arts Class Schedule Summer 2015

Visual arts classes are technique based rather than project oriented...the fun and learning is in the process more so than the "finished product". Each session a student will learn a specific technique that will encourage a well-rounded art student and help their skills to continually increase and grow. Students will work on various projects and create a portfolio based on specific skills and techniques.  Art showing opportunities will be offered throughout each semester.

Sketchbook and Drawing
Students will learn how to visually record their lives and their creativity through the use of a sketchbook. Basic drawing skills and techniques will be taught through various exercises. The goals of this class are to become better at drawing as well as exploring creativity. It is recommended that students have their own sketchbook

Students will learn the fundamentals of painting. Lessons will include color theory and basic techniques such as layering and highlighting. Students will learn to break down objects to simple forms then build in details. This class will provide the knowledge and confidence to tackle painting; learning will take place through use of demonstrations, guidance, and class exercises

Creating Comic Books:
Students will explore the art of cartooning by creating shapes, characters, and figures that have a "cartoon" feel. Students will learn a wide variety of skills in each class, with subjects ranging from character design to storyboarding to creating their own mini-comics. All students will complete a fun project

Multi-Media Technique
: Students will explore various mediums throughout the course of the session; from drawing, to painting, to 3D modeling, to working with clay....students will discover their own creativity and expression through an array of medium studies

Illustrations:  Illustration is everywhere... from advertisements, to video games, to storybooks. This class focuses on drawing and painting scenes, stories, characters, and other fun projects that everyday illustrators work on
