Students will be introduced to portraiture. We will begin this course by working on animal portraits. They will utilize all of the concepts taught leading to this session. The children will work from a photograph of an animal of their choosing (one will be provided, or they can work from a photograph they’ve provided). They will be encourage to look at individual areas of the animal, learning the importance of relation and size. They will be encouraged to look at things individually and in space/size relation to begin to understand the process of drawing a portrait. Art history will be included.

 

Thursday December 13th: 1pm-3pm Animal Portraiture Continued

 

Students will continue to understand the elements of animal portraiture. They will continue to work on the concepts    and understandings  from the first animal portrait course. They will receive personal suggestions in order to strengthen their individual skills.

 

January   (due to the difficulty of January’s subject it will require three different courses)

 

Tuesday January 8th: 1pm-3pm     Portraiture (People)
 

 

The lesson will begin with a lesson in art history; Leonardo Da Vinci, Degas, and other artists known for their brilliant protraits. This will help the students understand the variety of portraits created- from realism to expressionists to abstract. Then we will lead into their own personal portraits. They will have the freedom to create in whichever style they choose (however it will be charcoal as they are still working in black and white- as color has not been introduced yet). Each student will be asked to bring in a photograph of a person of their choosing to create their portrait. A photograph will be provided if they do not bring one.

 

Tuesday January 15th: 1pm-3pm   Portraiture Continued
 

 

We will continue to work on the students knowledge of portraiture. They will work independently on their portraits. I will be there to encourage, suggest and educate throughout the process. This will help them to become educated while maintaining their freedom to create.
