April Art Classes

Foiled Again | 8-10 years

Fundamentals of Art and Design *Especially for Homeschoolers!* | Ages 7+ 

Students will learn basic elements of art, line, shape, color, texture, value, and form.

This class will be individualized to fit the needs of the students in the class.  If they are already familiar with some aspects of the curriculum, we will move through those and focus on where they need to learn. If they haven’t had much experience with art, we will work at the beginning. The class can be split into three groups, each working on a separate project if needed. 

Fridays, 11:30am-12:30pm
April 7, 14, 21, 28

Find Your Perspective | 9+ years

Fun ways for beginners to learn how to use perspective in drawing landscapes, buildings and trees. It looks tricky but you just need to know the tricks!  

Wednesdays, 4:30-5:30pm

FIND YOUR PERSPECTIVE *Especially for Homeschoolers!* | Ages 7+

Students will not only learn how to do some basic perspective drawing, they will learn why it works and how to get a feel for using it. We will draw a building that looks real, do pictures that make us think about how perspective works, and practice “seeing” what we really see and not what our mind tells us.

Fridays, 11:30am-12:30pm
