1/2 Day December Camps​ for Youth

THE BASICS OF DRAWING ~ AN EXPLORATION (7 YEARS & OLDER)

Everything starts with drawing! Drawing is all about looking, making a mark and learning how to refine that mark to express what you see or feel. Using Aliki’s 7-Step system, students gain an understanding of drawing fundamentals  During the week, student artists practice different styles of drawing from realistic to abstract.

Your child will be drawing independently with confidence after 1 hour of instruction! Student artists will learn to see how an artist sees, and practice tips and tricks for drawing realistically like a pro. They will learn to let go of perfectionism and turn their “mistakes” into abstract inspirations and new discoveries.

This 4-day  winter art camp is geared to children 7 yeards and older who are beginning their artistic journey, as well as drawing enthusiasts without prior formal drawing instruction. Students take home a colection of 9 – 10 pieces
