After-school Art, Spring 2019
“Drawing to see” is an after-school art class open to all 3rd-8th grade students. The instructor, Ms. Remensperger, holds a Master’s Degree in Art Education from Pratt Institute, and is offering this class as an opportunity for budding artists to hone their observational drawing skills and develop their ability to “see” like a working artist. During this six-week session students will practice sketching, drawing, and painting in a variety of mediums from charcoal and ink to colored pencil and watercolors. We will be working with classic subject matter such as still life and portraiture, while also keeping daily sketch books throughout the session. As a result of this class students will:
- Build basic drawing and sketching from life observation skills
- Develop a sense of the elements of Art and Design, specifically, but not limited to: line, contour, gesture, balance, composition, scale, depth, contrast, symbolism and color
- Broaden their cultural awareness of visual mediums throughout history
- Develop the language needed to critique and express visual imagery
The classes will be held every Wednesday from 3:15pm to 5:00pm in the Clay Room beginning from Jan. 23 to Mar. 6 (no class Feb. 20). No previous experience is necessary, students need only a desire to practice and improve artistic ability. Supplies and snacks will be provided. This class is limited to 20 students. The fee is sliding scale from $80-$200 per student (payable through TADS) and includes supplies, a personal sketchbook, and healthy snacks.
