Classes for Children and Young People

Drawing for Home School Students (Age 11-13)

Mondays 9:30-11:30am; September 15, 22, 29, October 6
Instructor: Katie MacKinnon

This class is designed especially for homeschooled students. We will be exploring line, shape, value, color and perspective in this information packed series!! Using the art of Chuck Close as our proverbial guide, we will create a giant Mona Lisa with sticky notes, paying close attention to line and shape. We will also discover value and color through a torn paper collage self-portrait. We will then use one point and two point perspective to create a beautiful landscape and nameplate for your door! Bring your drawing pencils, colored pencils, and a sketchbook!

Katie is a certified elementary education and art teacher, and is pursuing her master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Shepherd University. Katie says, "I serve on the board of the Berkeley Arts Council, and I am grateful for all of the experiences I have been able to have there to share my love and knowledge of art. I am currently homeschooling my three children, ages 10, 8 and 6. I have heard people say 'I can't draw.' Well, I believe that you can if you try. As Paul Klee said, 'A line is a dot that went for a walk.' Instilling a love of art and art history within children is a passion of mine. Art is a combination of imagination, experience and knowledge. Allow your child to put these together and see what happens!"

Tuition: $48.
