Let's take a piece of functional furniture and transform it into a work of art! Whether you work with a chair, a chest, a side table, or a curio cabinet, you will find that a piece of old furniture, embellished with color and pattern, is really a fantastic work of art. Once you explore the possibilities of furniture as an interesting "canvas" rather than just a functional object, you will never look at furniture in the same way. Each class meeting, students will tackle another side or section of the piece. Students look at decorative arts from history as a rich source for ideas and inspiration. *Note: Students should bring in one or more reasonably sized pieces of furniture for this course.

Location: St. Paul's Campus. Grades 9-12. Designed for the high school student who wants to improve drawing skills and work toward 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 Edward's 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. Please note this is a High School course- for the MIddle School course of the same name, see NCSP 203.
