Art Classes for Columbia MD week of Oct 1st

Art Class in Columbia

This week at both my Tuesday morning and Thursday evening class we will be doing several projects.

For our warm up we will have three exercises.
     1. A practice blocking in squares using a different value for each square.
     2. We will practice basic circles going around and around each circle a few times to get the shape.
     3. We will use a scribbling technique to draw a turtle.

We will have a demonstration on perspective of receding sizes as they give the appearance of distance, such as telephone poles that are smaller as each one is further away.

We will discuss and draw some basic rules of facial anatomy, such as placing eyes in relationship to each other and the nose mouth etc. 

Our first project will be a pumpkin drawing using a model of a pumpkin.

Our second project will be a pair of mantle clocks.

Our water color projects include painting a seashell on a textured surface like sand- this project uses negative space to leave the sea shell white while painting the surrounding areas.

If time allows we will practice a portrait in watercolor.
