Online Art Class for Ages 11+ on Tuesdays 

The foundational building block in art is drawing. A few people are born with a natural ability in this area. The general consensus is that they are the only people that should be artists. This is the normal philosophy in art education.   
 
Everyone is an art genius. They can be taught to “see” like an artist and they can be taught the skills to be a confident one.  Children are born loving art. They draw imaginatively at a young age. Every piece that they produce is a masterpiece in their eyes. You have a fridge door to prove this. At this age they are oozing confidence and love to paint and draw. At a certain age their drawing transitions to the realm of realism. The world is revealed to them through older eyes and they see their stick figure for what it is. If they have not attained the technical skills to cross this bridge then the paints and pencils are packed away and they grow up believing that they cannot draw. 
 
Most teachers did not go to art school to become an artist, and most artists are those people that could just paint and draw and have no idea how they do what they do. 
 
What if you could join a class that was taught by someone that wanted to be an artist since they were ten years old?  They went to art school and got their bachelor’s degree in art. They also ended up getting married, having eight children and homeschooling. Though that experience they learned how to pass on their passion for art. It can be learned incrementally like any other subject.   Join Mrs. Sally  for a fun year learning to see like an artist and building the skills to confidently say that you are one.      

Section 1 – Drawing (1st 6 Weeks September 15th to October 23rd):

Let’s FACE it, drawing practice can be really boring. If you are a good PUPIL you will do it. In this drawing course you will SEE that practice can be fun. Before we start, I want you to do two things.  

  1. Get a piece of paper and spend five minutes drawing an eye. You can look at a picture or in the mirror. Date it, sign it and then put it in a drawer
  2. Get another piece of paper and draw a portrait. Sign it, date it and put it away. Now gather your materials and get ready for class!
