Drawing is the single most accessible form of art available. All you need is drawing skills, imagination, a pencil and a sheet of paper. It is the fundamental skill of the visual arts that can and should be learned by all children.
I teach drawing skills while also developing visual learning skills in children ages 3 to 14, giving them an academic advantage in the classroom.
Having more than 10 years of teaching experience, I found a new and effective way, which is also a fun way, to learn new drawing skills. I love to work with children who are interested in drawing and painting. Your child receives undivided attention, individual instruction and freedom of choosing media and size of paper as well as numerous demonstrations. We will work on forms and shapes and will integrate the techniques and application of drawing that can be applied to realistic, abstract and illustrative work. A child will learn to prepare their paper and the drawing tools. Moreover, there is also an option for them to learn how to create different textures using a variety of surfaces including wood, asphalt, carpet and cloth. An astounding facet of my drawing classes is that in each new lesson we will “travel” to a different country or planet where we will learn something unique while artistically exploring that specific place. My student will be able to create postcards and pop-up cards. We will integrate music into the art lessons. The child will even create musical instruments. Laughter, fun, confidence and inspiration is the credo of my art classes.
Do not miss an opportunity to develop as a young artist and begin the portfolio building stage of your art education. Your child has the opportunity to work in over 10 areas of art: pencil drawing, watercolors, charcoal drawing, sculpture, illustration, design, clay and painting.
“Drawing not only provides the basis for other creative activities – like painting, design and printmaking – but it also provides a direct link with reading, writing and especially mathematics.”
