Introduction to Drawing for Children
Children naturally love to draw and depict imaginative and interesting stories in their artwork. And, one day they start wondering how to create images that look real. Where to start? How do you create drawings that are in correct proportions? What is form and how can you use shading and value to make an object look dimensional? Learn types or pencils, erasers and charcoals. The class will be set up to include a series of exercises for each new skill and then using skills to draw simple objects from life, turned a little upside down with some imagination.

Much of class time will be on the pottery wheel. Any level of ability is welcome and all supplies are included. Clay can be taken home for hand building as part of the class. Glaze will be available to take home and finish work as desired so as not to take up class time. Special arrangements will be made during class for extra time to come in for glazing as needed. Class size is limited to 5-6 students so we can focus on personal attention. Once the class is full it will be taken off the website. If you would like to secure your post please register and we will be in contact soon. We will have many projects created on the pottery wheel during the 4 weeks of class.
