Curriculum:

This program is designed to help young artists develop their foundational skills to a pre-professional level and prepare them for secondary education opportunities and long-term art practice. The curriculum is based on drawing and painting methods that have trained master artists for centuries. These include:

  • Master-copies

  • Cast Drawing

  • Still life 

  • Figure Drawing 

Alongside these skill-building exercises, students are required to keep a personal sketchbook to develop their own ideas, have fun with art, and experiment. 

 

Tuesdays

Students will settle in and have time to get a snack and do some free drawing during the drop-off window. When Class begins at 3:30 we will either have group instruction with demonstrations, or start individual critiques while students make progress on in-process-projects. Each student will be on their own individualized work plan to address them at their level within the umbrella of the main skills we will be working on as a group. During weekly critiques they we also be asked to show that they have been working in their sketchbooks. Work done in sketchbooks is not critiques based on skill of execution unless a student wants suggestions in that area. This is an opportunity to develop their creativity and the habit of daily art practice. 

Thursdays 

We focus exclusively on developing competency and confidence in drawing the human figure in the class time from 3:30-5pm. This will include drawing the figure from life, gesture drawing, anatomical and geometric construction drawings, and portrait practice. Figure drawing is perhaps the single most important skill to develop as an artist and I've put this program together in part because I believe young artists need access this essential skill set.
