    This class is for teens. Students will be working outside observing the structures of trees on AOY Art Center's campus, Patterson Farm.

    We will be drawing a tree in detail adding all of their imperfections. Starting with the over all structure then adding their various branches showing their sweeping movement and various directions, while adding lights and darks as well as the tree's texture.

    The student will also learn watercolor techniques while creating a landscape with the tree as the focal point. We will end this 6 week course creating a 3-D tree structure that can be used as a fantasy tree stump night light.

    This course introduces color and composition as they pertain to abstract work. Students explore formal elements such as shape, value, color, mark making and surface with paint and collage materials. Through their work with abstract concepts students investigate the 2-dimensional picture plane and compositional structures.

    Students will learn the fundamentals of painting while using the abstract language and will be working from observation and non-objectively.

    This course will be broken up into three units surveying three major forms of abstraction: objective, non-objective gestural, and hard edge. At the end of the course students will be able to solve introductory painting problems such as color mixing, creation of space and form. They will also learn how composition and design are relevant to painting while using the abstract language.

    There is an artist in all of us! If you agree with Picasso and like to experiment with art supplies, then this class is for you. Young art students (ages 8 - 12) will be inspired by using a variety of materials and mediums such as acrylic paint, tempera, oil pastels, dry pastels, ink. They will have the freedom to apply new techniques, try different styles, and to think outside the box. We will explore the process of painting, drawing and printmaking. We will have fun achieving textures and effects on interesting surfaces. Children will delve into this creative mind set with enthusiasm and leave with unique artwork and a happy heart! All material fees are included.

    Teaching Artist: Kristin McMahon-Roba
