Art Classes For The Very Young Child
For example there are "Mommy and Me" art classes for children ages 3 - 4. In this type of an environment the parent and child participate together. The format is normally freeform, and they are introductory art classes where emphasis is placed on fun. These courses can be single day or may meet one time a week for several weeks.
As children get older, they usually enjoy taking art classes with more emphasis on a form that they enjoy. Look for art classes tailored to that interest. Kids art classes are normally set up with a small group of children. Again, these types of art classes can be offered for one day only, or may take place one day a week for a set period of time.
Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Classes
Art classes are normally divided into beginning, intermediate and advanced groups. Your child will be placed in group based on their skill level and experience. Normally you will find 12-14 students per class.
The art of drawing is not a "gift." It's a skill that can be cultivated and improved over time. It's about seeing and creating form and space.
In a basic drawing class students draw such things as animals, characters, and still life, while learning drawing principles such as line, shape, texture, color, shading and design. In addition, class lessons are developed to encourage personal expression and creativity so that each student produces a unique finished piece.
Working with clay is excellent for fine motor skills and it also helps to improve eye/hand coordination.
Pottery classes should be fun and informative classes which teach kids the basic skills of pottery. Instruction will include the fundamentals of wheel throwing and trimming with an overview of glazing and firing processes. The class will provide students with all the skills needed to make basic forms in pottery and will allow them to create their own exciting pieces of ceramic art.
Oil Paint Class:
During this course students will explore the incredible flexibility of this medium. The classes will experiment in the different ways to apply the paint and tools to use to produce different effects.
They will learn how to scoop paint from a palette (mixing surface) to the canvas with chiseled shaped bristle brushes. In addition, they discuss brush strokes, how to blend, and spread paint upon a surface.
Painting is actually drawing with a brush. Therefore drawing skills are continuously stressed in any painting class. The better students draw, the better they will paint.
An introductory watercolor course is designed to teach two elementary activities: basic technology of painting with a brush, and use of watercolor as a particular medium.
This type of class will offer your child the chance to discover the fun of creating their own cartoon character. It allows them to put this character into funny situations and to enjoy seeing their comic strip ideas come to life. They will learn basic cartooning methods, explore their imagination and create a humorous illustration.
What Is the Commitment ?
Practice is important with art just as it is with any other sport or activity. It is important to reinforce the instruction taught in class and to constantly express creativity. It is just like learning how to play the piano, practice as much as possible and you will accomplish the task. We dedicate our time, you commit to practice.
Equipment Needed for Art Classes
Art classes teach students not only what to use, but also how to use and care for their materials.
Proper materials play an important role in a students' training. In most cases the art school will charge a materials fee and will provide appropriate supplies for your child. The choice of supplies used depends upon the age and skill level of the student.
The cost requirements will vary based on the type of class that your child is taking.
