Kids Drawing and Painting

August 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Instructor: April South Olson

Dates: 5 weeks Series June 27 to August 1 {Skips July 4)

Kids explore different art concepts, learn about materials and techniques in those delightful and diverse art lessons for the school-age kids. Ages 8 and up. The series consists of the following sessions:

1. Still life painting. Students will first create a line drawing from a still life exploring the art element of line.  Having a composition in place we will then use our imaginations to play with color and paint our vision in to complete our unique artistic expression.

2. Card board collage painting – They will stack cardboard shapes on top of each other to create a 3 dimensional depth and then paint the shapes to finish it off.

3. Print making Portraits – with Styrofoam

4. Pattern textured landscape – using oil pastels and watercolor. We’ll head out to the garden and find a landscape picture to paint.  Focusing on surface texture using pattern and line students will come away with an exciting Plein Aire landscape. Students will first draw a simple lines and then they will break up the composition with dramatic pattern.

5. A yarn painting.
