Art Studio

 
Art Studio specializes in showing how art is really a series of common sense decisions based on some very simple principles that aren't obvious at first. Art Studio was established in 1999 teaching continuous and real art lessons to both children and adults. It is not an “activities class”. It is real art instruction.

Art Studio
Classes start up throughout the year, depending on availability of times, but are most effective when begun in September and coincide with regular school year. Classes of 8 students are formed at the beginning of the school year and kept together through the school year. All children are taught exactly the same thing adults are. All students start with Basic Drawing, no matter where they are in the school year, or what they have done before. Then they have Basic Color Classes. These two classes will give your child a significant advantage in art among their peers.
First Year Sessions:
- Basic Drawing. This is the most difficult and important session taught. Students learn to draw a simple (cartoon) human figure from all views, how to move arms and legs, how to ink drawings and the fundamental geometry underlying all aspects of art. Students are always drawing their own figures.
- Basic Color. This is a very easy session compared to Basic Drawing. Students incorporate what they learned in basic drawing and see the same things they learned in basic drawing apply to color as well. Students use Chalk and oil pastels and are free to draw whatever they want.
- Drawing 2. Review of 3 views of humans and how artists rely on simple geometry to add details into drawings. Students learn about hats, costuming and showing action in figures.
- Water Color. Always building on 'what went before' students use tube water colors, stretched water color paper, learn to compose a picture and then transfer it for painting.
- Scaling & Perspective. Students learn the basics of scaling and perspective. They are now beginning to get into some very deep geometric principles. Many students have told me they breezed through the same things taught in school mathematics because of this class. Careful attention is paid to teach it with the utmost clarity here.
- Water Color 2. Students become more familiar with the wonderful techniques of water color.
Second Year Sessions:
- Geometric Figures. Students learn the mathematics of the circle to make complex geometric designs.   This is a class that absolutely fascinates children. Precise geometric designs are made and colored with color pencils.
- Water Color 3. Water color is a study that keeps going. New techniques are learned.
- Realistic Humans & Animals. Students learn how even serious art uses "Mr. Zero" to get accurate faces and accurate drawings of animals.
- Acrylic Painting is the modern version of oil painting, except it dries faster.
- Pen & Ink. Students learn how to use dip pens and India Ink.
Art Studio is not meant to be an “elite school”, but for all who want to learn to draw. Method of teaching is to show “why” things are the way they are and consistent repetition. There is no grading, only teaching understanding that complex things are made up of a few simple.
