New for summer 2013! The advanced drawing and painting program is for students in grades 6-9 with previous drawing experience and established skills. Students take a core 'Advanced Drawing and Painting' studio class that focuses exclusively on drawing and painting materials and techniques. Students will explore composition, proportion, perspective and value while continuing to build their observational skills. They will also be introduced to contemporary art practice and ideas, and have the opportunity to create self-directed creative work.
All Visual Art students participate in the Visual Arts Studio Seminar.
A two-hour Advanced Drawing and Painting studio focusing on drawing foundations and techniques, including graphite, ink, charcoal and conté. Emphasis will be placed on various approaches to drawing and painting from observation through still lifes, perspective and portraiture.
Participation in the weekly evening figure-drawing studio is encouraged.
Students choose one of the following one-hour visual art electives:
- Digital Arts
And two additional electives in any arts area, including visual arts: view list.
There are open studio tutorials offered two evenings a week.
Students will choose their courses after the enrollment process.
A portfolio that shows established skill in drawing, particularly from observation. Students returning to the Intermediate Visual Arts program are highly encouraged to apply for this program, as it will build on the foundational skills they developed in a previous summer.
