‘Experimenting with Drawing and Painting’
This after school course aims to develop the students' understanding of drawing and painting, encouraging material experimentation and creative play. This term we will look at a variety of contemporary and modern artists who use different making processes, and will create our own artworks inspired by their techniques. Students will learn new drawing processes, experiment with painting mediums, and other mixed-media approaches to artmaking.
Over the 9 week term, students will discover different artists and learn new artmaking skills and techniques across a wide range of mediums. The first half of the term will look at strengthening skills and techniques, introducing students to both traditional and more contemporary art making processes. Towards the end of the term, the classes will look more at how to make a ‘resolved’ artwork, and students will have the chance to work on their own self-directed project whether it be a drawing, painting, print or sculpture!
This multimedia course is perfect for kids who like to do a bit of everything and like to be playful with their artworks. The teacher will work with students to strengthen skills they already have and also teach them something new each lesson.
