Arts Combo: gem journals & sculpting

Arts Combo: gem journals & sculpting

This class is a unique combination of drawing and art lessons in the context of gem journals (2-dimensional art) AND sculpting (3-dimensional art).

So, what is the difference between a journal and a gem journal? Journals become gem journals when you add depth, colour, and creativity through illustrations — such as photographs and embellishments of any kind). Using Aliki’s Seven-Step system for composing a journal page, budding artists will begin to explore, play, create and listen as they express themselves. Art journalling is a wonderful process of drawing, collaging, writing and mixed media. Skills used in this class are easily transferable to schoolwork and projects. Studies show that studying via a combination of drawing and writing helps students retain concepts better.

Students will also be exposed to the process of sculpting as a means of extending their drawing skills to new art disciplines. Students will complete a variety of sculpting projects such as building their own Alberto Giacometti-inspired armature, creating a relief tile from Zentangle patterns and more! All sculptures are built from scratch using the same techniques and methodology as professional artists.
