Drawing and Painting Like a Big Kid

Is your child eager to cultivate his or her drawing and painting skills? Students in this class will learn foundational skills in drawing and painting, and hone these skills with a developmentally appropriate project each week. For inspiration, artists will draw from their own experience of the world, and from the work of famous artists. In the culminating project of this class, students will unite music and art, creating a painting based on a song. This class will help students develop planning skills, motor skills, the capacity to express their feelings.
Ages: 5+
