Drawing Enrichment Workshop (Ages 6-11)
Young artists working develop their natural ability, improve their skills and explore new techniques as they learn the fundamentals of Drawing. Students discover a variety of wet and dry media such as pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastels as well as watercolors while they sketch, shade, use perspective and the color wheel. Projects created from life and the imagination include portraits, landscapes, still lifes, optical illusions and more! Participants are inspired by the work of Paul Cezanne, Bridget Riley and Pablo Picasso.
Students create realistic pieces or use their imagination as they explore the traditional technique of painting using non-toxic acrylics on a stretched canvas. Young artists produce colorful landscapes, abstractions and still lifes as they discover the basics of composition. Following step by step instructions, participants learn the proper use of paint and how to mix their own colors. Placing the canvas on a table easel is recommended for the full experience!
