Location: St. Paul's Schools. Grades K-2.For the young artist who loves to draw and wishes to dive into a world of color, this course journeys from mark-making with dry media into the world of paint and other wet media. From looking and sketching exercises to experimentation with color, students will explore how color can be used for expressive purposes. Paint media such as watercolor and tempera paint will be used to explore how colors interact to create various effects, mixed colors, and textures. Emphasis will be on noticing details about the surrounding world and finding ways to communicate experiences with brush-strokes, lines, and splashes of color.
NCSP 203 Perceptual Skills in Drawing (Grades 6-8) 0.00 credits - TBA $360.00

Section A Meets 9/15/2018 to 11/17/2018 on Saturday from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 6-8. Designed for students who want to improve drawing skills and work towards 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 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. No class on July 4th.
