Age appropriate lessons continue and build upon foundations of drawing and painting. Projects are repetitive but not redundant. Students build their knowledge of observation, design, composition, and creativity. Structural drawing is introduced, students will learn perspective, depth, proportion and scale. The learned use of line, form, and value of black and white drawing is now applied to color theory. With the obtained knowledge of color theory students will learn to represent objects using color harmonies and using color to represent all values. Students will be introduced to many drawing and painting mediums, with painting-handling techniques and color mixing introduced.

The artistic understanding of the human form is a lifetime of study. Anatomy and structure (the study and analysis of the skeleton and muscular structure of the human figure) is learned through the use of live models, as well as reference to the skeleton and muscle structure. Students will understand the proportions of the human form through the study of the skeletal and muscle structure; this knowledge is then applies to the artist's interpretation of human proportions. Models perform dynamic gestural poses as well as extended poses. Instructors work intensely with students to develop drawing skills, engages them in the understanding of the human form and how to view it's physical characteristics. The study of the human form, still life and landscapes greatly enhance observational skills, drawing skills, and creative expression and is an essential component for visual artist. The fundamental techniques of painting are taught; practical color theory is applied, including paint handling, surface preparation, color mixing and self-expression. High school students work primarily in oils and are required to purchase their own oil paints, turpenoid, brushes; care and handling of these materials will be stressed. Critique, group discussion and individual attention occurs on a daily basis. Portfolio development will be emphasized for students in grades 11-12, with the understanding that drawing is the backbone of every successful college admission portfolio. In addition to core lessons, students may choose to spend time in alternative classes such as Character Development and Animal Drawing. 

In addition to the fundamentals of Drawing and Painting; Photography, Glass FusingTextiles and Printmaking will also be included in Spring Camp!
