In this class, students are involved in a variety of experiences in developing their drawing skills and abilities. Different approaches, tools, materials and techniques are presented and explored using a diverse range of media, from pen and pencil to color explorations in pastel and paint. Students create drawings from observation, imagination, and in response to the art of master artists and their peers. Students maintain a sketchbook and work toward developing a portfolio of their drawings for presentation. 3D STUDIO FOR CHILDREN: From wire and wood sculpture to clay, plaster and carved forms, this course is for the student who thinks in three dimensions. Students combine a mixture of additive and subtractive techniques to create sculptures that may be large or small, smooth or rough, uniform or multi-colored, individual or collaborative. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Brancusi, Moore, Nevelson, and many more, students think about the way sculpture can convey a likeness, repeat forms, express a concept or emotion, and utilize space in visually interesting ways. Emphasis is on sculptures as artful three-dimensional objects that can be viewed from all sides, with a form and surface treatment that are cohesive and expressive of the students' ideas and vision.
