Semi-private tutoring within a small class environment.
Classes are combined ages, however, lessons are taught appropriate to students age, ability and comprehension.
Art classes are structured as a fine art program to facilitate students in developing their drawing and painting skills, thereby giving students the visual language to confidently express their own artistic voice.
As students progress, it is expected students will need several classes to complete a project. One on one teacher-student interaction fosters each student’s confidence in their own unique abilities without judgement of comparing themselves to others. When a student’s confidence in their skills grow, their desire to expand their ideas and ability to create and express their own unique creative voice grows naturally.
Students will learn from a variety of subjects:
Still life, landscape, seascapes, animals, figure and ( portriature/ see below ). Students will expand their artistic knowledge by experimenting with various styles and techniques of drawing and painting, while learning about the work of other artists past and present.
Portrait Instruction only taught with non toxic blendable mediums / graphite, charcoals, chalk pastels.
Lessons are broken down into basics, beginning with the building blocks of drawing, based on each student's age and skill level. Students will receive extensive instruction around various drawing techniques, to help them develop their perception of line, shape, perspective, and shading with light and shade to create three-dimensional forms.
A strong drawing base provides the basis for students to develop confident painting skills through the understanding of color theory, color mixing, elements of design, and composition. The painting mediums students will be working with are non toxic dry and water-based media only. Graphite, oil and chalk pastels, coloured pencils, water soluble pencils, water soluable pastels, gouache, ink, watercolours and acrylics.
Please note: Program is not designed for students looking to create through experimental play art and may not be appropriate for children with special needs and some LD
