Watercolor is an affordable and easy to use paint, yet it can be difficult for younger children to control. Many students experience puddles and runny paint drying into curled, rumpled disasters...
In our classes, students will learn some easy, new and FUN techniques to achieve beautiful artwork with this simple medium, such as: watercolor resist, wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, salt technique, gradient wash etc.
Scratch Art is not a medium most children are familiar with, but it is a magical medium that is proven to be one of our students' favorites, regardless of ages.
This is also a great beginner medium to teach fundamental fine art techniques, which can be easily applied to many other art projects or media.
Throughout the week, students will learn many drawing techniques, such as directional, parallel and contour lines, crosshatching, texture design, shading, value change etc. Many of these are essential skills in Pen and Ink drawings that our students will learn through a much more exciting, and child-friendly medium- Scratch Art!
