Each session $14.00.

The first lesson is designed to cover the basic design that we will explore through the other 3 lessons in other media.  The children really like expanding on a subject in other media.   The exploration in following up with the other media teach the children to build concepts of artistic expression, and when they learn they can learn skills that grow that expression by listening and observing it reaches out into other areas of their lives and improving their analytical skills and classroom performance.

The first lesson in a series is always the “Drawing” lesson, as this is where the artist plans his painting, sculpture etc.  So the drawing stage is very important.

For a young child this  helps them understand process.  First we draw the picture and then add in the details that make it more realistic.  Shadows, contrast, reflections, light.  Things that to a young mind are abstract rather than concrete, so when they see the importance of these things their mind blossoms with creativity.  Taught in a  child friendly method!!!

Even adults are excited, when they experience first hand the creative stimulation of working in oil pastels.  The medium allows a “dig your hands in” experience with the manageability of crayon.  Students can experiment painlessly with layering and blending colors, something not possible with crayon.   Also it helps develop those fine motor skills because the fingers are working in coordination with the brain to not just draw, but to “Think” on paper.  While it looks simple enough, it is an immersive experience that children and adults really enjoy, but for the younger child – is universe expanding!
