Fall 2016 Art Classes

We've had some great projects and terrific artists in classes this fall!  Here's a look at what we've been busy creating!

Watercolor Houses
We all started out with the same drawing of a house and the kids got to decide if their house would be happy or spooky.  I challenged the 10-11 year old class with a much more detailed drawing and they did awesome!  I love their creativity!

                           So many CUTE Oil Pastel Owls! 
Using pastels on colored paper has endless possibilites! Besides great techniques for pastels, the kids also learned a lot of drawing skills such as drawing the owl the correct size on the paper, and how to create different feather textures. 

                                                   Here's a few of them.  You can check out all of the owls here:

Still Life Drawings and Paintings
It's always good to go back to the core of drawing and teach the kids how to draw from objects sitting on a table with light and shadow.  The younger kids learned how to compare relationships of objects and draw their shapes.  The Teens are quite accomplished artists and so we focused more on the shading and how to use different hardness levels of graphite pencils.  The oil painters did a monotone painting of a pumpkin to get them warmed up for their harder still life projects.
