Section A Meets 7/20/2015 to 7/31/2015 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 3-5. Here is an opportunity to create something new from something forgotten or unwanted. Look around, cardboard tubes and boxes, plastic bottles and bottle caps, plastic forks and spoons, a broken coffee mug. Everywhere you look there is an object of waste waiting for a new purpose. In this course children will have the opportunity enhance perceptive skills by way of examining found objects for the countless alternative uses for creative expression. The magic happens when children respond to their imagination by creating sculptures, exploring surface design, or making collages, all which create narratives conveying a sense of playfulness and innovation.
NCSP 219 Faces and Figures (Grades 6-8) 0 credits Denise Webster $340

Section A Meets 7/20/2015 to 7/31/2015 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 6-8. Learning to draw the human face and figure realistically can be fun, explorative and expressive. In this course, students draw from observation to learn basic proportional guidelines and techniques for drawing the face and figure. Beginning with quick gesture drawings, a sequential range of exercises is planned to sharpen students' perceptual skills and their understanding of the human form. Using both wet and dry media, students use each other and professional costumed models as subject matter for portraits and figure compositions. Students also have opportunity to view a variety of master figurative works from history as they explore expressive use of gesture, line, and color.
NCSP 221 Printmaking Workshop (Grades 3-5) 0 credits Debra Rogers $340

Section A Meets 7/20/2015 to 7/31/2015 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 3-5. Originally used as a means of duplicating images, printmaking has become an art form in its own right. In this course, students use relief, intaglio, stencil techniques, collographs and combinations of these to explore the expressive potential of printmaking media. Works by historic and contemporary artists are examined to identify ways in which they have applied design and technique in their prints. Emphasis is on developing a personal repertoire of symbols and imagery that are then incorporated into single prints as well as editions of prints. Students are exposed to a variety of hand-printing and printing press techniques.
NCSP 229 Learning to Draw through Manga (Grades 6-8) 0 credits Denise Webster $340

Section A Meets 7/20/2015 to 7/31/2015 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 6-8. MANGA is the Japanese word for comics. Manga characters possess easily recognizable features, and there is a wealth of Manga genres that appeals to children, teens, and adults of all ages and genders. Underlying the ability to "draw Manga" is a foundation of drawing skills that leads eventually to Manga style. While learning about Manga characters, compositions, and stories, students in this course will learn fundamental perceptual skills that will hone their realistic drawing abilities. By looking carefully at Manga use of light/shadow, body and face proportion and gesture, then juxtaposing that with expressive gesture, dialog, and context, students will understand the fundamentals of realistic rendering with a stylistic Manga flair.
NCSP 306 Portfolio Preparation: Beyond the Self Portrait (Grades 9-12) 0 credits Archie Veale $340

Section A Meets 7/20/2015 to 7/31/2015 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 9-12. Explore how a self-portrait is created, beginning with the traditional self-portrait and then branching into thematic and/or color conceptual ideas about self as the basis for composing self-portraits that may or may not include a ace. Students begin with observational work using mirrors and dray drawing media, then express themselves via self-portrait in unusual, meaningful and innovative ways, problem solving ideas from beginning to end, analyzing the efficacy of developing images (self as well as peers) and developing a repertoire of visual thinking techniques.
NCSP 308 Portfolio Preparation: Techniques of the Old Masters (Grades 9-12) 0 credits Archie Veale $340

Section A Meets 7/20/2015 to 7/31/2015 on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 9-12. In this course students look at the drawings of old masters to determine these artists' selection of subject, use of compositional devises and application of technique. Students explore ways in which chiaroscuro, toned ground, sanguin, pen and ink and other materials and techniques may be used to achieve the representational and expressive effects observed in the master works. A visit to the Baltimore Museum of Art's print and drawing collection is planned. Students use their ongoing sketches and explorations as the basis for four completed drawings.
