    This class is for Teens. Students will be working outside studying and observing the structures of trees on the AOY Art Center property.

    We will be drawing them in detail adding all their interesting imperfections. Starting with the overall structure adding their branches and sweeping movements adding their lights and darks as well as their texture. The students will also create a watercolor/ pastel tree scene after a discussion on composition and watching a demo on how to create a multi media piece using watercolor and pastel. We will end this 6 week course creating a 3-D tree structure made out of two bottles, tinfoil and grout. After painted this mini tree structure can be used as a night light by putting lights in the jars.

    You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques that assist in constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. Level: Beginner’s thru Intermediate.
