For the mature young student serious about learning traditional methods of drawing and painting. Teaching Studios’ Art Lessons for Kids 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, they will color them with watercolor, learning how to mix color and make a color wheel. The Monday class also features clay sculpture.
Children will then move onto still-life painting, landscape painting and master-copy using classical methods of drawing and painting. Students will also learn to make sculptures in water based clay. 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.
