Foundation Art: Drawing & Painting for Teens
Meets Sundays @ 12pm-2pm LIVE in-person at our studio in Dumbo

Suitable for Teens 9-16 yrs

This foundation Art Class will get you set up with the basics and be a fun & educational class. We will begin the course with preliminary drawing exercises and these will involve studies in still life, techniques in shading, perspective & ways of seeing, how to employ light and shadow. The second half of the course we will turn our drawing studies into paintings , learn color mixing, texture & fun brush techniques & applications. During the course we will look at master artists ( both present & past) for inspiration, and borrow from their painting applications, picking up fun tips! After more thorough exercises & practice, we will move into creating a final painting. This class is a basic introductory class, perfect for beginners who are curious about the visual arts but have never taken a class before, or for those who want to learn more. As noted we will cover some drawing & painting exploration within the four week period, so you may benefit by signing up for longer 8 / 9 wk session to practice your craft.

Art supplies are included in fee. However we do not supply large canvas, if you would like to work on a large canvas please bring with you to class.
