All art projects are oriented towards building creativity and technical skills. Students who are working on their portfolios will gain knowledge in art techniques that they can continue to develop throughout the year. Many demonstrations will be given and an elaborate still life is set up for drawing and painting. Students are given constructive criticism and advice how to approach each project. Individual exploration and creativity are encouraged. While students may work at their own pace, they are advised to complete the projects. There are many approaches that range from observational to interpretive. Students will divide their time between drawing and painting in a variety of media. Subjects include still life, portrait and figure.Adult Studio Art ClassesFor adults of all levels – use our studio and supplies and our expert advice, guidance and critique. (canvas not included)Art & Music ClassesOur new Art & Music class is 1.5 hours of the most creative and fun art projects everyone expects at Kids at Art accompanied by great tunes by the latest addition to our team, Matthew Marlinski, an early childhood development teacher and entertainer. Using his 15 years of musical background in hopes to inspire the next generation, Matthew is a kid at heart and strives to make his classes fun for all ages! Be ready to move your bodies when in one of his classes! Matthew also uses room dynamics to have quieter moments teaching early music theory, reading stories, and exploring musical instruments. His goal is to instill a love for music and art into the children at their early ages and to provide a great foundation for their creative energy as they continue to grow.
Adult Life Drawing ClassesThere will be a live model or still life each week. These classes are non-instructional. There will be a class monitor and informal critiques. Artists need to bring their own preferred choice of medium, as well as sketch pad.Mixed Age Life Drawing ClassesThere will be a live model or still life each week. Beginning with a simple contour, students will use line to discover a variety of shapes. Students will draw from life and learn to develop form and space with cross-hatching and shading, understanding what makes a strong composition. Work will be in black and white with charcoal and pencils, and in color with pastels. Informal individual and group critiques.
