Painting and Drawing Course for Children
Saturday, 10:30 am to noon or 1 pm to 2:30 pm - Start anytime!
The painting and drawing course for children is an introduction to various mediums and the artistic expression.
In order to keep the students motivated, we will propose topics that interest them and give them the basics of plastic language. We will discuss the notions of forms, proportions, values and the mixture of colours (for painting).
For children with more experience, we will give them more advanced subjects that will allow them to sharpen their observation and develop their abilities.
PAINTING: Please bring your paint (at the minimum, the three primary colours plus white), palette, odourless solvent, gessoed canvas or panel, a small mirror, paper towels or rags.
DRAWING: Please bring your pencils, vine charcoal, kneaded eraser or standard eraser.
For the first course or for those who do the free trial, we can supply the material. We can also provide all the necessary equipment for the ten courses with a small supplement of $20 payable upon registration.
Don't hesitate to call us if you are unsure.
Age of participants
More than the age, it is mainly the child's ability to work for 90 consecutive minutes that determines if he/she is ready to take this course. We mostly have children from 6 to 12 years old.
