In this unpredictable and adventurous course, students open their eyes to the colors, textures and styles of the people and places around the world (and beyond). From the most remote mountains to bustling cities, students explore the contrasts and similarities of cultures and places.

Location: St. Paul's (Grades 1-3). This course takes the basic principle of creating a plate or stamp to produce repeated images, and takes it much further. Through an exciting exploration of mark-making, line, and texture, students combine a variety of unusual materials to design printable plates. Using a variety of inks, paints and other wet media, students then experiment with applying color to their plates for printing. Without a press, the printing process is much more hands-on, with students using their hands and pressure to carefully generate prints that vary from print to print. From relief prints to collograph and stamp-making, students generate amazing prints and editions.
NCSP 203 Perceptual Skills in Drawing (Grades 6-8) 0 credits Joseph Citrano $305

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. Please note this is a Middle School course- for the High School course of the same name, see NCSP 312.
