Artists will get the opportunity to gain painting skills using an array of different paints. Throughout the 6 weeks, the artists will also gain an understanding of color theory, painting/drawing from observation, and adding surrealism twists (if the artist wishes) to illustrate still-life, figurative, and landscape art while exploring watercolor and tempera paints. This course will provide an outlet for kids to create art with both directions on material use and providing the artists space to have their own interpretations of projects. Being a part of this class will strengthen artistic skills and grow artist identities.
