The purpose of this class is to let kids experiment with a variety of mediums. I will demonstrate techniques in the following mediums: acrylic, watercolor, oil, cold wax, collage, pastels, paint markers, and charcoal/pencil. Students do not need to try every medium. One or two will be fine if they don't want to gather many supplies or if they would rather focus their time differently. Regardless, a cityscape is a great beginning piece in which to experiment as the composition can be simple or...
Students will not master any of these mediums, but they will get a taste for the different strengths and weaknesses of each. Hopefully they will come up with a favorite or two they would like to explore more. They will learn about composition and horizon lines, and how to plan a landscape. They will learn color theory and balance, and they will experiment in realism and abstraction and see the power in both.
Homework each week will be to continue working on their pieces. The more they work at home, the faster they will pick things up in class, and the more pieces they will complete. But the amount of time they spend will be up to them.
