Drawing and Painting; Art Classes for 8 -12 year olds

Art classes for 8 - 12 year olds.

This is a great age for Art Classes. Children are not self-conscious yet about how their art work “should look.” They are very open to ideas and information. Learning how to draw and feeling confident about it will take them safely beyond the age where most of us decided “we do not know how to draw”.

In this class, we have a good balance of drawing from imagination and drawing from observation. Drawing from imagination is very important at this age and teaching them a few art concepts that can be applied to their drawings will open their creativity and imagination. We teach drawing from observation and help students to “see” and notice details that will help them to translate it to paper. We teach about painting in this class including the proper use of brushes, color mixing using watercolors and tempera paint and other mediums such as soft and oil pastels.

This class builds confidence and individual creativity in a guided but fun artistic environment. Under the guidance of Oksana Oubari, 8 – 12 year olds, will learn the basics of good drawing, develop an eye for detail and discover their own artistic talent. The young students will be encouraged to try out different materials, explore with colors, depth and proportion and reveal their personal style.
