Creative Painting - 9 weeks

Creative Painting - 9 weeks


In this art class, children develop an understanding of the fundamentals of art, including form, colour, and proportions, and learn to use different art tools.

Projects will cover drawing and painting techniques with a variety of materials, such as watercolours, pastels, and pen & ink. Projects in this class loosely alternate between more creativity-focused projects and more technique-focused projects. Students are encouraged to develop confidence and independence in their art-making.

In my children's classes I focus on teaching practical art techniques, such as how to capture proportions, draw from observation, and use different materials. Children are encouraged to use their own problem-solving skills and be imaginative in their art-making.
