The Art of Seeing I:

6-10 yrs:  Saturdays: 9-10:30 am 

Students will learn how to “see” in this class. Each week, we will practice observing a different object, drawing what we see - the lines, shapes, shadows and light. Students will draw bones, glass bottles, pinecones, feathers and skulls.  We will also draw from our imagination, using the skills of shape and proportion to create from our minds. Students will use pencil, charcoal, acrylic and watercolor. They will receive instruction in how to use these mediums and explore their different qualities.
