Are you looking for a beginning art course for your child? The Drawing and Watercolor Painting workshop may be just what you are looking for! This is a beginning drawing and watercolor painting course designed for ages 6-12. No drawing or painting experience necessary.
Students will create two (2) magnificent watercolor paintings per session and participate in an activity that cultivates critical thinking skills, develops hand-eye coordination, and encourages self-expression. Your child will learn the skills to create masterpieces of their own long after the course is complete.
In Session 1, students will create watercolor paintings of a Garden Cat and a Surfin’ Koala.
In Session 2, students will create watercolor paintings of a Garden Cat and a Surfin’ Koala.
In Session 3, students will create watercolor paintings of a Garden Cat and a Surfin’ Koala.
In Session 4, students will create watercolor paintings of a Garden Cat and a Surfin’ Koala.
The drawing portion of the class uses a kid-tested, step-by-step method that will both inspire and delight your child into drawing action! This process involves organizing shapes and lines together until a recognizable outcome is achieved. Once students complete the drawing portion of their project, they will move onto painting the project. Students will learn basic watercolor techniques and apply these techniques to complete their project.
The Drawing & Watercolor Painting course is designed to give young children the tools they need to begin their artistic journey into self-expression, reflection, and creative thinking.
Supplies: All necessary art supplies and materials are provided.
