This series of workshops is designed for imaginative 6 to 12 year olds! Each workshop explores an element of drawing through creative play.
Workshop 1: Goin' Fishing. Students will use fishing poles (rulers and string) and paint to explore how movement and control effect line.
Workshop 2: Skydiving! This week students will explore how viewpoint and perspective relate to drawing while participating in skydiving drills, don't forget your parachutes (backpacks)!
Workshop 3: Forts. Yes! I said FORTS! Keep the perspective juices flowing with fort building!
Workshop 4: Draw Me Dress Up. Are you a pirate? A princess? A potato? Figure drawing is fabulous! Bring your dress up clothes and let’s model!
Workshop 5: May I Take Your Order. Students will hear their stomachs growl when they see the composition on their plates. Come learn about composition in drawing at the world famous CAM restaurant (art room)!
Workshop 6: Kids Choice. Students have the chance to propose their favorite play activities!
