Online Art Class for Ages 8+ on Tuesdays at 12:00 PM
Section 1 – Drawing (1st 6 Weeks November 9th to January 11th):
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.
- 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
- 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!

Section 2 – Watercolor (2nd 6 Weeks January 18th to March 1, 2022):
Watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums to master because it is so different from the opaque paints people use all the time. It is also one of the most beautiful mediums if used correctly. This course will teach the foundational skills needed to begin using this medium. We will dip our toes in the water with pen and ink. After that introduction we will move on to the foundations of this wonderful paint. Each section will end with a finished piece that will inspire you to keep painting.
