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 Edwards' 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.

NCSP 311 Portfolio Preparation: Expressive Portraiture (Grades 9-12) 0 credits Alyssa Stokes $300

Location: St. Paul's Campus. Grades 9-12. This course focuses on ways that drawing the portrait and self-portrait, partial or full figure, can go beyond investigating and accurately rendering the subject, and instead, become a vehicle for exploration within the artist. Students interpret and manipulate color, value, line and other elements to a more personal end, so that finished portraits become a reflection of the students own feelings and values. The goal of the course is to free the artist from the expectation of realistic rendering and provide the opportunity to react, explore and draw from a deeper source. Individual and group critiques round out each session.
NCSP 314 Portfolio Preparation: Beyond the Still Life (Grades 9-12) 0 credits Alyssa Stokes $300

Section A Meets 6/23/2014 to 7/3/2014 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

Grades 9-12. Intended for the student who wishes to flesh out an art portfolio with representational work, this course is a mix of figurative, landscape/cityscape, and still-life work. Rather than simply drawing from life, however, students are asked to think critically about subject matter choices and points of view. Beginning with open-ended prompts to help determine personally meaningful or symbolic subject matter for life-drawing, students respond visually by seeking places, objects, scenes, and actions to communicate personal narratives. Students gain skills in rendering realistically, creating form through light and dark, and developing strong compositions. While doing so, students also learn how to make purposeful selections in composing a piece of art. Students think deeply and critically about how to infuse a work from life with symbolic meaning, mood, and personal style via distinct personal mark-making and expression.
