This may be called "Art School for Kids", but all ages are welcome! This course includes segments on:
*Art Elements/Art Principles
*Basic Drawing Techniques/Drawing projects
*Basic Watercolor Techniques/Painting projects
*Basic Acrylic Techniques/Painting projects
I have included vocabulary handouts, lists of materials needed for each project, pictures of student examples, and each video includes steps of 'how to' from beginning to end.
You could take your time and do one project a week, for several weeks, or you can do all the projects for a couple hours a day in a week.
Take this course if you have never been good at art, always wanted to draw and paint, or just want to brush up on some new ideas.
The first thing we will cover will be the basic art concepts and art terms so that when I mention something, you’ll know what I’m talking about, so do look over your vocabulary list! Also, take a look at the PowerPoint of student work. As you finish your projects, send me a picture, so I can add it as well. I will update this PowerPoint often so your work can be included.
