About The Courses
Drawing courses focus on building fundamental drawing skills as well as creatively self-expression. The course is developed into three levels.
Level 1: Students learn the most fundamental drawing skills. They will explore different drawing tools, different techniques for creating value, contour drawing, various paper surfaces for effect, and many other insights. Our school uses creative pedagogy. So students will draw from life and learn to create with their own insights.
Concepts: Line and value
Skills: Observational drawing skills, shading and blending with pastel, marker and color pencil
Visual Art Standards: Use shading (value) to transform a two-dimensional shape into what appears to be a three-dimensional form; use contrast (light and dark) expressively in an original work of art.
Artists of Inspiration: Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol
