Building on skills learned previously, students explore more involved projects in drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture and design. Observational drawing skills are reinforced with still-life assignments, and students paint both from life and imagination. Students review basic color theory, including how to mix colors and create a range of values. Proportion, compositional design, negative/positive space and size relationships are introduced. Students make an edition of original prints and are exposed to different processes of relief printing. They combine several hand-building methods to create clay sculptures. More advanced papier mâché techniques are taught in connection with puppet making and sculpture projects. Students learn basic concepts of weaving using yarn on string looms. Students are challenged at a comfortable level and supported with individual instruction as they expand the parameters of assignments.
