About the Course
Drawing & Painting Animals

Fall Semester: Drawing and Painting Animals
Spring Semester: Drawing and Painting Portraits

For the first half of the year, students will develop their skills as artists by learning to draw and paint a variety of animals. Emphasis is on realistic drawing and painting. Students learn to draw animals from photos (instead of merely copying a line drawing), and at-home assignments are minimal but include sketching pets or another animal from life. In the second semester, students will learn to draw and paint portraits and people. Students learn the proportions of the face and figure and how to represent an individual's characteristic features.  Media include graphite pencil, charcoal, pen, watercolor, gouache and acrylic. All supplies provided. 


Cannot enroll children into a inactive course.
