In this course we will build expressive drawing skills using the landscape and sculpture at Art Omi as reference and inspiration. Using a range of media including charcoal, pencil, ink, and pastel we will explore fundamental 2 dimensional art principles such as perspective, value, form and texture. Expanding our understanding of observational drawing, we will experiment with scale, format, and subject matter in order to find unique modes of personal expression. Our studio time will consist of quick sketches and drawing games, viewing work by contemporary and historical artists, and extended individual projects throughout the sculpture park. Materials included in tuition fee. No experience necessary! For teens age 12 - 16.

How does an artist develop their own personal “voice”? In this course we will focus on ways to convey ideas and feelings while painting from observation by using color, expressive brushwork, and a range of techniques in paint application. Students will build fundamental skills in oil painting through explorations in color mixing, value, and composition. Daily presentations of work by contemporary painters and their studio processes will inform our goal of learning to find inspiration in the world around us. During the week, students will participate in quick studio games and exercises while also creating one or more finished oil paintings on canvas based on the landscape and sculpture at Art Omi. Materials included in tuition fee. No prior experience is necessary! For teens age 12 - 16.
