For the mature young student serious about learning traditional methods of drawing and painting. Teaching Studios’ Art Lessons for Children begins with a step-by-step program where kids start with basic drawing concepts first. Children will learn to make a simple line drawings after classic illustrations. Next, we teach them some color theory so they can color their drawings.
Next, they will move onto still-life painting, landscape painting and master-copy using classical methods of drawing and painting. We will then have the students study sculpture, working from their drawings and paintings. Each lesson is tailored for individual student needs. They will also be exposed to and encouraged to learn from work of great artists from the past in a range of mediums and covering many themes. We let children be children, but still teach them good technique. This is an excellent foundation that prepares young artists for AP Portfolio classes in high school and our own portfolio prep program here at Teaching Studios of Art.
The main difference from the Saturday class and the Friday class is that the Saturday students also study sculpture. Students work in clay, sculpting from Old Master Drawings and Paintings.
