Here at the studio, we 'spiral' our curriculum. Meaning that each set of skills builds toward another. Having background knowledge as to how we work as artists makes higher level learning possible.
This class is specifically designed for second and third graders, as a curriculum-based art project. Students often bring me drawings on notebook paper or small paper from around 'the house'. NOT THIS TIME! Students will work on a luxurious 18x24 inch artwork!
Listening, sequencing, and patience are the groundwork for this drawing. Step by step we will cover the concepts realism, abstract, line, shape, cutting, tracing, borders, overlapping, pattern, motif, outlining, painting and color. The resulting picture blooms with movement and color as each element works in harmony. This skill set will have you ready for hundreds of classes and challenges to come!
Please consider the follow-up class to this one, ABSTRACT SCULPTURE in which we transform these designs to 3-dimensional pieces.
