DRAW IT – ages 11 – 15
DRAW-IT– Drawing is all about learning to draw what you see, whether it’s a realistic rendering or cartooning where you exaggerate to create an effect. We will work on portraits, still lives, and design using proportion, perspective, and line quality to produce strong drawings. Starting with pencil and paper, students will have the option of experimenting with other media such as colored pencils and marker pen.
Tuesdays, 4:30 – 6:00 pm, April 3 – May 29, no class April 10 (8 weeks)
Instructor: Ramona Agro
Fee: $230($220 for Glastonbury Art members)
PORTRAIT PAINTING FOR TEENS – ages 13 – 18
Students will work up sketches in charcoal in preparation for acrylic paintings which employ color tone and temperature to convey space and communicate emotional quality. Our primary goal will be to achieve likeness through the proper application of proportion, shape, and value. If taking skills a step further is reasonable, we will explore how color intensity and temperature can expand the meaning created by a painting. Students repeating this class will be offered advanced projects. Fee includes materials.
Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Mar 28 – May 23,no class April 11 (8 weeks)
