Students will understand basic principles and techniques in art making; drawing basics (perspective, light and shadow), painting in acrylic, watercolor, and gouache, with hands-on sculptural and whimsical projects including polymer clays and papier-mâché.
Students will be able to articulate proper artistic terms and participate in creating individual pieces of art. The program begins with art basics and elaborates on principles through demonstration and applications, incorporating art making with art appreciation and art history.
Jennifer’s classes introduce the fun of art, its application and techniques. She applies wit and imagination in her instruction, bringing a “no art snobs” environment while communicating terminology, secrets of techniques and effective art instruction for all ages.
Students begin the first fundamental tool of art - a sketchbook that they design the cover of with a variety of paints, notions, and applications. The sky's the limit with this initial project that brings scholars a perspective of their own creativity and talent.
Supplies: All supplies needed for this course will be available when students arrive for their first class.
