Foundational Drawing and Painting
$225/ 7 week session
This weekly 90 minute class is for middle school/early high school age students who are moving on to a more independent level in their art. The teacher will work with students towards reaching their own individual artistic goals, comparing students only to themselves and their progress over time. Projects will include working with still life, breaking down a photograph, portrait work, developing illustration skills and more. All supplies are included and will vary within projects. Supplies may include pastel, marker, colored pencil, charcoal pencils, tempera paints, watercolor paints and acrylic paints. Class sizes are kept small so that the teacher can give personal attention to each student.
$225/7 week session
In this weekly 90 minute class middle school/early high school age students will learn the basics of "throwing" on a high powered pottery wheel. Students will toggle between hand building and wheel stations, learning all of the skills necessary for creating pottery. Trimming and glazing techniques will be focused on, as well as an appreciation for the process of kiln firing. Students will be supported to work on more independent projects over time, as the teacher will introduce project planning techniques to help students find their creative voice. Class size is limited to ensure that students receive personal attention.
Due to our kiln firing schedule, projects may not be ready to take home on the last day of classes. Pieces are typically ready 1 week after class completion.
