About The Event

These art classes will run for one hour, 10:00-11:00am, every Friday for four weeks. 

Understanding the basic foundation of drawing technique is a good way to advance your artistic skill! The class schedule is as follows:

  • Week 1 (July 26): Drawing Materials

This week I will hand out purchased sketchbooks and go over materials (please have your child bring their own sketchbook if one was not added to the order. We will briefly talk about types of paper and pencils, as well as styles of drawing. I encourage everyone to bring the same sketchbooks to each class, as it’s fun and encouraging to see how 

far you’ve come once you reach the end of a sketchbook. I will have several materials for the children to experiment with.

  • Week 2 (August 2): Sketching

This week we will dive right into our drawing fundamentals. We will learn about line, shape, and form. During this class, children will practice their sketching skills. 

  • Week 3 (August 9): Shading

This week we will continue to practice drawing forms from basic shapes. We will also practice highlighting and shadowing to create more realistic forms. We will talk about different methods of shading and creating textures.

  • Week 4 (August 16): Composition

This week and next the children will pick a subject of their choosing to draw. It can be something from their imagination or something they see around them in the room. We will discuss composition of drawings, to include balance, focal points, and contrast.

These classes are meant to build off of each other, and are therefore combined into a course. Please make sure each date will work for you so your child can make it to every class. I will offer only one make up day for those who have missed a class and do my best to schedule that for a day and time that would work for anyone needing it.
