The Phonics of Art and Drawing levels I & II is a 30 week 1 ½ hour class where the students will learn to develop and improve the fundamental drawing principles that will enable them to draw anything! This progressive step-by-step course will provide a solid foundation for artistic expression. The topics include Shape, Shadow, Contour Line, Perspective, Color Theory, Portraiture, Composition, and Style (Impressionism & Expressionism) Uses charcoal, oil pastel, colored pencil, and watercolor.
Level II, III, IV and V students will continue to work on these same principles of art and drawing with progressively challenging subjects and more expanded media used. They will use the additional tools of color pastels, water colored pencil and be introduced to acrylics. Higher levels will progress to sampling other areas of artistic expression within the discipline of an artist. Students must complete the levels in order.
