Drawing & Painting

Course #0101005

Drawing & Painting will focus on 2-D drawing and painting and teach students how to more confidently and capably capture the world around them.

Students will create art on paper and canvas, both from observation (stuff they are looking at) and from their imagination (stuff they are not looking at). Examples of topics include the fundamentals of sketching and finishing a drawing, specific strategies to draw natural and human-made environments, like landscapes, cities, and houses; everyday stuff like cars, furniture, trees, or clothing; and fun stuff like block letters or space rockets. Students will then study color theory and learn to use acrylic paint and watercolor to add color to their work.
