Mixed Media Art 

Thursday 6:00pm    Elementary Mixed Media – Grades 1-4
Thursday 7:00pm    Intermediate Mixed Media – Grades 5-8
Instructor, Valerie Everman

This class is an exploration of creativity in a variety of art forms and mixed media.  Emphasis will be put on students learning the basics of media and theory elements, and principles of art.  Various lessons will include: drawing, painting, collage, multimedia expression and sculpting.  In an effort to combine creativity with academia, some classes may focus on particular artists and their styles as well as world art.  This class is an extension of your child’s K-5 and intermediate school art class.

Our art classes are kept small to ensure individualized attention and instruction.  Students may be required to provide some of their own supplies.  Student work will be displayed in an end of semester art exhibition.

 

Explorations in Art for the Special Learner

Monday 6:00pm           Grades 2-6
Instructor, Valerie Everman

This class will follow the same course description as our Mixed Media classes, but move at an acceptable pace for learners with special needs and accommodations. This is a time for special learners to explore, create, socialize and have the freedom to work within their capabilities.

 

Advanced Drawing and Painting Techniques

Monday 7:00pm             High School through Adult
(younger students may be admitted with
special permission from the instructor)
Instructor, Valerie Everman

This class will focus on building fundamental drawing and painting skills. In drawing, students will study basic techniques such as line, shape, perspective, positive and negative shape, tone, color, and texture while learning to draw specific items each week.  This class will be “skills oriented” and not “project oriented” making it particularly well suited for students who want an arts curriculum that goes beyond crafts. Mediums addressed will be graphite, colored pencil, pastels, and charcoal.

In the painting segment of the course, students will learn various brush stroke and color blending techniques while creating paper and canvas works of art.  While learning to work with watercolor paint, students will explore still life, landscape and personal interest paintings.  With acrylic paint, students will explore both abstract and realistic style paintings. Oil paints may be introduced late in the semester.

Our art classes are kept small to ensure individualized attention and instruction. Students may be required to provide some of their own supplies.  Student work will be displayed in an end of semester art exhibition.
