Session Descriptions

Intermediate

Ages 8 – 13

Drawing Foundations
Students will build foundational drawing skills in line, value, proportion, perspective, and composition. Rooted in observational practice, students will explore the beauty of Wildwood Park as we build our skills.

Painting Foundations
Students will build foundational painting skills using water based paints. We will study color theory, paint mixing, and painting techniques. Students will be given the option to do observational or abstract works.

End of Day Mural Painting
Students will finish their day creating a group mural for the WAMA concert. It should be a visual representation of the music performed by the musicians.

Advanced

Ages 14 – 18

Drawing Foundations
Students will explore a variety of drawing materials as we take a deeper look into our drawing practice. Students will apply their foundational knowledge in line, value, proportion, perspective, and composition as we explore realistic, abstract, and non-objective art making.

Mixed Media Narratives
Using collage, drawing, paint, and non-traditional materials, students will create symbolic works based on personal narratives. We’ll develop our narratives through quick writing prompts, group discussions, and critiques.

End of Day Mural Painting
Students will finish their day creating a group mural for the WAMA concert. It should be a visual representation of the music performed by the musicians.
