Art Exploration (ages 6-10) - October

Unit 2-
The Elements of Art

October 2,
1, 8, 15, 22 & 29th

Elements of line, shape, tone, color, pattern, texture and form are the building blocks of composition in art. When we analyse any drawing, painting, sculpture or design, we examine these component parts to see how they combine to create the overall effect of the artwork.

Class Description: Art Exploration is the perfect combination of painting, sculpture and drawing with monthly units running September through May in conjunction with the school year.  Fundamental concepts using these mediums will be introduced using fun, imaginative projects that fit your child’s grade level. Art history is woven into these lessons to expand your child’s art knowledge, and encourage art appreciation. Our goal is to teach the language and concepts of art, and encourage creativity. Students in these classes will have the opportunity to develop confidence in their own artistic ability and to discover individuality and self-expression through a visual medium. (Acrylics, watercolors, mixed media, drawing etc. will be rotated for a complete art experience over the months)
