MEDIA EXPLORATIONS This course offers the child a variety of exciting art experiences based upon explorations of his/her immediate world. Using a variety of art media the child translates his/her learning into drawings, paintings and sculpture. In creating their art, the child explores visual concepts such as open/closed, smooth/ rough and straight and curved as perceived in art and the visual world. Lessons are designed to actively engage the child in the creative process.
ART INSPIRED BY NATURE In this course, students look at the natural world around them as inspiration for creating their art. Through looking at the work of artists including Georgia O'Keeffe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Sumi brush painters and Native American artists, students determine the influences of nature on the art of various times and places. Excursions around the campus and neighboring areas provide opportunities for students to select and directly study different natural forms for use in creating their own compositions. This course spans a wife range of art processes, media, and dimensions (2D and 3D) such as drawing from observing nature, sculpting nature-inspired forms, using natural materials for mixed media collage, recording changes in nature, and much more.

TREASURES FROM THE SEA The focus of this class centers around the many wonderful things that live in and around the sea. Using observation, imagination and the art of others, students experience different drawing, painting and sculpture media and techniques to explore the visual qualities of various sea creatures, and the potential of the subject for expressive compositions. Students learn and apply selected design elements and principles in creating exciting and unique compositions.
MIXED MEDIA: ART OF COLLAGE In this course, students explore and apply ways in which disparate imagery and materials can be arranged to create compositions that are both aesthetically pleasing and expressive of ideas and feelings. Students explore the potential of a variety of ideas, images and materials in designing and creating compositions of subject and topics that have personal meaning. Using a balance of found images and created images, students are encouraged to create narrative works, with equal emphasis on treatment of the work’s surface, choice and arrangement of images, and selection of media.

CREATING ART INSPIRED BY NATURE Artists may travel outside the studio to create works of art by observing the natural environment. In this class, students use the school campus to draw and paint from nature, investigating the forms, colors, patterns and textures observed to create compositions of natural forms. Studies of natural environments are also made working from still life compositions in the studio setting created by bringing in elements of nature and forming interesting arrangements of natural forms. Historic and contemporary painters serve as mentors as students learn about how these artists bring their subjects to life and make us feel, smell and see their worlds just as we draw and paint the world around us.
PRESSURE'S ON: PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP This course is ideal for students who wish for a change from drawing from life and are ready for a process-oriented course that will yield surprising results. Originally used as a means of duplicating images, printmaking has become an art form in its own right. From a handful of basic techniques in creating printing plates, students learn that the artistic results can be infinite depending on colors, pressure, and the plates themselves are manipulated. Emphasis is on developing a personal repertoire of symbols and imagery that are then incorporated into single prints as well as editions of prints. If you have never explored printmaking beyond the standard relief linoleum print, then this class will open your eyes to the amazing variety of ways prints can be generated, manipulated, and put to use.

PORTFOLIO PREP STUDIO 1 AND 2: Set up like a college studio course, this all-day studio workshop begins with a review of students’ current interests, with discussion about student’s aspirations for growing in specific artistic areas. Work is primarily 2-dimensional and spans a wide range of both wet and dry media, from pencil and charcoal to paint. This course emphasizes skills development and development of the creative thought process. Students keep a reflective journal and sketchbook as they identify areas to strengthen in their artwork. Beginning with a series of studies and exercises in the morning, students also work independently with the instructor to develop and plan for tailored art problems which they then explore and develop in the afternoons.
