In this five week course, children ages 8-12 will build confidence in their drawing skills by learning how to draw using basic shapes. Students will learn how to sketch from life and create fun designs similar to Zentangle. Elements of value and how to use a pencil to create certain effects will be explored. The classes are primarily taught using pencil; however, for the final class, students have the option to create a watercolor painting. This course is designed to be fun and challenging at the same time. Students grow their skills, and when they see what they’ve made, they gain confidence and a sense of excitement over their creations. No previous art experience necessary.
