Level: Middle and High School Students
Oct. 11 - Dec 6 (no class 11/22)
Instructor: Anne E. McCormick
This class is designed to broaden the artistic skills of Middle and High School students. The 8-week session will be divided into four 2-week sessions – each devoted to a specific skill set. Weeks 1&2 will focus on Color and Color Theory, weeks 3&4 are devoted to Composition, weeks 5&6 will be all about Perspective, while the last two weeks will revolve around Light and Shadow. Each class will involve a bit of theory from the Instructor, but the majority of the class will be devoted to experimenting and doing. Students can expect to work with a variety of materials (including graphite, watercolor pencils and paint, acrylics, gouache and collage materials) and to work from still lives as well as photos and their imaginations. A great class for any teen looking to explore and expand their artistic abilities and understanding of the creative world.
Supply List: All materials will be provided by RAC unless otherwise instructed
