Art Fundamentals

LESSONS IN DRAWING AND PAINTING FROM LIFE

Lessons in the fundamentals of drawing and painting (from life) are designed to develop the visual literacy and communication skills of students from grades 6 to 12.

 

The curriculum is based on the classical tradition of the European art academies and ateliers, including techniques passed down from Renaissance masters.

 

Each lesson is organized in a step-by-step logical progression for students to develop their ability to draw and paint representationally. Lessons in art history, relevant to practical training, are incorporated in the curriculum.
