This course will focus on developing students’ observational skills while focusing on tone, form, proportion, likeness, depth, composition and texture. Special attention will be given to portraiture, drawing the human figure (with the aid of a live model), and still life.
The objective of this course is to help students prepare a body of work for application to specialized visual art programs in high school, for an art related career or to develop their art abilities.
Through a variety of painting, drawing, mixed media and sculpture projects, students will refine their skills. The goal is to help students develop a well-built portfolio by the end of the session.
