Christine begins making art with new students by teaching them the basic Elements & principles of design.
The principles of art represent how the artist uses the elements of art to create an effect and to help convey the artist's intent.
We will use both drawing and painting materials to experiment with and develop our knowledge of design.
young children can cultivate an understanding of concepts in art, through simple method,practice, and artful play.
It's also never too late to begin!
many adults have put art behind them, feeling that they lack talent, when all they really need to begin is a basic knowledge of concepts that help form art.
Students will be given projects, and exercises to take home, as well as book-lists for practice and inspiration.
Students will learn to use several learning modalities, we teach them...
how to focus and concentrate
develop hand-eye coordination
develop their mind's eye.
"How you plan on solving the design problem in front of you is the underlying logic, thinking, and reasoning."
These are just a few reasons why Art is such a useful tool for learning and education. Not to mention, the many therapeutic qualities of creative expression.
