General Information

Created for older learners and repeat students ages 9-14. Younger repeat students may be accepted with instructor’s permission.

Older beginner and repeat students will work more independently using the line and shape skills taught in Drawing I, (and reinforced in this class) to create accurate drawings. Continued emphasis on creativity will encourage students to select unique backgrounds and details for their drawings. Based on student interest and previous experience, the instructor will develop plans for students to explore and apply skills involving color, texture, value, form, perspective and/or proportion more accurately. Repeat students may work on individual projects with instructor’s permission.
