What you'll learn in this kids art camp class:

Art of XX Century is a program recommended to students that have have mastered art fundamentals basics (i e can freely draw humans, animals, landscapes, and vehicles alike, from real life and imagination).

Students study various aspects of aesthetics and more advanced techniques, learn to deliver artistic messages through the composition and artistic language of the work, while studying the styles and artistic movements of the XX century.

Each lesson covers an important art concept, needed for fluent representational drawing and painting. It is combined with an intro to a cultural phenomenon: a style, and epoch, or a single artist. Students get to create their original artworks from scratch within the guidelines of the topic. Each topic can be adjusted to a variety of levels, from beginners to advanced. 

Art teaching is an interactive process. We start a lesson with a short lecture and demonstration (live at studios, pre-recorded for online lessons). Teachers provide advice, help, correct the digital image of a student's work, explain what works in particular cases and what does not, and why.

​High-quality art materials are included in the in-studio price.
