Course # Course Title Credits Instructor Cost
NCYP 316 Portfolio Prep: Perceptual Skills in Drawing (Grades 9-12) 0 credits Archie Veale $330

Section A Meets 9/13/2014 to 11/22/2014 on Saturday from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

Grades 9-12. Designed for the high school student who wants to improve drawing skills and work toward more realistic drawings, this course focuses on drawing from observation. Students are guided through a carefully sequenced, step-by-step process designed to develop the student's perception and thinking skills. Based upon exercises in Betty Edward's Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, this approach has been successful in improving students' ability to draw realistically, even for those who think they cannot draw. As such, it provides the young artist with an excellent bridge between drawing symbolically and working more realistically. No class October 18.
NCYP 317 Portfolio Prep: Painting from Observation (Grades 9-12) 0 credits Bryan Bieniek $330

Section A Meets 9/13/2014 to 11/22/2014 on Saturday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

Grades: 9-12. This course is designed to help students refine their skills in observing color, making purposeful choices about color, and painting from life. Students will experiment with acrylics, temperas and watercolors as they learn to mix cohesive color palettes and apply both realistic and expressive color to their pieces. Art historical exemplars will be used to emphasize the incredible diversity of styles and expressiveness that can be achieved with color. No Class on October 18.
