(suggested ages 7-12)
This class is part of our “Foundational Art” series of classes. There are eight terms each year at the Foundry (four in the Fall and four in the Spring), and each term is four weeks. We offer eight Foundational Art classes focuses on a specific topic of artistic expression so every four weeks the subject matter of these classes change.
Each four week term can be taken individually and student’s will learn about many diverse elements of art such as:
This class is focused on exploring Form in drawing and painting.
Students should expect to create several “practice / exercise” type projects along with at least 2 finished artworks pieces that the students would be happy to display in their own home.
The class experience at the Foundry is built around providing a place for students to exercise their creativity and express themselves through artistic activities. Of course high priority is placed on having fun, however, our curriculum is designed to provide real learning that encourages students to develop their skills as well foster an understanding of purpose and perspective that can serve to enhance their lives in more meaningful ways.
Our mentors (teachers) are specifically gifted in teaching, and understand artistic expression is about allowing students to create their own art, and not simply painting by numbers. Projects focus on individuals following their own ideas artistically, while still providing instruction and advice on technique and skill advancement.
