Painting is an exciting and engaging class that allows young artists to
develop drawing, painting, and image-development skills. Focus is
directed towards line quality, colour theory, and exploring inspiring
Canadian artists that allow our developing artists to have freedom and
confidence in creating artwork.
Students explore traditional
and non-traditional methods of image generation, using markers,
charcoal, sticks, ink, wax, pastels, watercolour paint, acrylic
paint, and many other materials. Students work on paintings
and prints multiple times to add layers of interest and detail through
editing and constructive critique.
This course allows developing
artists the chance to create a mature portfolio of artwork while having
fun, experimenting, and making meaningful connections with their peers.
