The Art Workshop is where artmaking happens! Our Art Studio Camp lays a broad-based foundation on which young artists can build their creative ideas and expressions. Students are introduced to a variety of art media and basic art concepts, processes and skills. Drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpting all combine to heighten students imagination while learning the fundamentals of fine art.
For beginner and advanced alike, drawing skills are fundamental to the artist’s visual education. Through guided practice, beginning students sharpen their powers of observation as they learn to translate what they see into drawings. Using basic tools and materials, students develop their drawing skills by exploring concepts such as line, form, value, proportion, perspective and composition. Through a series of graduated exercises, students learn to draw the figure, still life and the environment with confidence and prepare for further work in a variety of art media.
Young artists in this workshop discover the nature of that magic, as they take command of the marks they make, and are provided with a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of drawing and sketching. Assignments utilize a rich array of drawing materials, while expanding on traditional subject matter: still life, landscapes, cityscapes and portraits, as well as both observational and measured application of making marks. One-on-one instruction are provided to meet the specific needs of each student.
Have you ever looked at a great drawing and thought, “How was that done?
