Focusing on Foundations of Art
Using Digital Tablets
This class focuses on learning to draw/paint using a digital drawing pad. Some basic experience with the program is required. We will use the same exercises as my traditional drawing students but using the digital tools instead of pencil and paper.
Do you or your child want to become a professional artist or animator someday? Do you want to prepare your child for auditioning to OCSA or another art program or conservatory? Well, you must start somewhere and many schools have eliminated the basic elements of art from their curriculum. As a former artist at Walt Disney Studios working on a number of animated feature films, I am here to prepare you for your journey into becoming a professional artist.
I have found that students are just not prepared for college or a career in art without learning the fundamentals first. Many schools and universities have eliminated the basic foundations of art and many students are lacking the skills needed to major in art or pursue a career in art. This class is for the very beginner or someone who would like to learn a more structured system to significantly improve their drawings. Ages 10 and up. We will be doing exercises to focus on the Foundations of Art. These fundamentals are extremely important in order to have success in your drawings and paintings.
Over the first 4 week session, we will explore the first two Foundations of Art. Line and Shape. This includes doing drawing exercises to help your brain learn to draw what you see. This program is divided into 4-week sessions continuing on to the other Elements of Art for those who have a goal of learning to draw. Please see videos below for an overview of previous students who have taken my drawing/painting courses and what we will be learning in class.
This is an in-person class. This class size is limited as to allow for time for individual feedback in class. Classes will be conducted via Zoom. Please prepare by getting a phone or iPad holder and suggested supplies before classes begin.
