Studio Art: Foundational Skills for 3rd-5th grade
Taught by Kathy Moss
Class dates: Mondays, 4pm-5:30pm, September 25 to December 4 (no class 10/9)
This foundation class for students in grades 3-5 familiarizes young artists with the language and concepts of two-dimensional art forms at an introductory level. This is accomplished through the exploration of materials combined with exposure to master works (from reproductions in books) and experiences with different genres (still life, life drawing, collages). The students will learn observational drawing techniques while experimenting with materials such as pencil, charcoal, ink and ink wash, and watercolor, and concepts such as positive and negative space, additive and subtractive mark making and color mixing, while acquiring skills of seeing and drawing gesture, proportion, scale, weight, volume, and considering composition, subject, narrative. The students are encouraged to challenge themselves in a fun and supportive environment.
