Kids Fall Afterschool Art Classes

Fall art classes at Studio-Kids are now registering. All the information is on our classes page.

Here's a few shots from the beginning of summer and the 2-day Painting bootcamp with 1st-3rd graders. We started the camp with a Bicycle color wheel project. Students mixed all their colors for these paintings with just the primary colors, yellow, cyan and magenta. They mixed tints of their colors to finish the rest of the painting.

We reviewed and learned about primary colors, secondary colors, warm colors, cool colors, complimentary colors, analogous colors, tints, shades and so much more.

 A little black and yellow ochre were added to the mix.

I mix up the projects regularly but i do have my favorites for students that are new to my classes.
Still life arrangements with musical instruments is one of them. Everyone can relate to music. Students did a few thumb nail sketches of possible compositions before they could start sketching on their canvas. I help out with making small adjustments and usually just telling them to make everything larger and to fill the space.

The first stage of the painting is a base coat.

With our leftover paint at the end of the day, students worked on abstract compositions. A fun way to experiment with brush strokes, wet on wet effects with acrylic and color.

We finished camp with a group critique where all students could share their favorite part of the classmates work.
