Teen Portfolio Class
What you'll learn in this kids arts / crafts class:Students who are working on their portfolios will gain knowledge in art techniques that they can continue to develop throughout the year.
For teens applying to college or advanced fine arts programs, this class offers advanced art training, life drawing and help in whatever projects they need to do to complete their college applications.
All art projects are oriented towards building creativity and technical skills. Many demonstrations will be given and an elaborate still life is set up for drawing and painting.
Students are given constructive criticism and advice how to approach each project. Individual exploration and creativity are encouraged. While students may work at their own pace, they are advised to complete the projects. There are many approaches that range from observational to interpretive.
Students will divide their time between drawing and painting in a variety of media. Subjects include still life, portrait and figure.
