Art Workshop for Young People ~ With Elizabeth Jenness-Burge, July 20-24, 2015, 10:00am – 3:00pm

kidsclass4Join us for this week long art workshop for young people where skill and creativity come alive. Highlighting an enjoyable learning experience in the spirit and practice of the Old Masters.

The goal of this workshop is to provide skill-based learning to create a deeper understanding of the visual imagery that is all around us. At the Atelier we believe that anyone has the ability to create art,  by learning basic skills such as those implemented by Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Each lesson will encourage a child’s creativity while asking them to analyze what they see and apply it in a variety of different exercises.

The workshop will focus on emphasizing form primarily using charcoal to establish and build upon a foundation of traditional drawing.

 

 

Topics will include:

The tools and their uses

Basic shapes from flat to form

Form in perspective

Form in light and shadow

Form in design

We will apply ourselves to drawing from flat as well as drawing from life.

The lessons will provide a great start for the beginning student, as well as enhance the drawing skills of the more advanced student.

Cost: $245 – includes all materials
