Beginners

Beginning students will develop basic naturalistic rendering skills using various drawing media including pencil, charcoal, chalk pastels, oil pastels and ink. We introduce basic perspective and composition techniques as they apply to observing light and shadow properties.  These techniques are emphasized daily with personalized instruction. Most importantly, the class allows beginning students to gain experience in three-dimensional drawing techniques.

Daily topics will include:

  • Claude Monet and the Impressionists
  • Landscapes
  • Georgia O'Keefe and pastel techniques
  • Macro drawing
  • Other topics based on student interest

Advanced

Advanced students will reinforce prerequisite concepts such as rendering basic forms, 3D objects, and perspective using various drawing media including pencil, charcoal, chalk pastels, oil pastels and ink. These techniques are emphasized daily with personalized instruction. Students can learn how to assemble a portfolio for college admission and beyond. On a case-by-case basis, students are encouraged to create artwork for their International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) portfolios.

Daily topics will include:

  • Parallel perspective, oblique perspective, aerial perspective
  • Light and shadow properties
  • Futurism and Surrealism
  • Positive-negative drawing
  • Other topics based on student interest

The end of each week culminates with a group critique highlighting all student work. During individual and group critiques, we cultivate aesthetic awareness and encourage personal artistic expression.
