Grades 5th-8th


This class is designed to help students grow their drawing skills. The focus will be learning to draw realistically, using different techniques and shading, learning about properties, perspective and balance. There will be occasional painting projects. Each month will be a new theme. The goal is to give students a firm foundation in drawing and to help them develop their own style as an artist.
