Drawing and Painting Course for Children
Ongoing class, start anytime from Labour Day to the end of June
Drawing: Saturday 10:30 am to noon
Drawing or Painting: Saturday 1 pm to 2:30 pm
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.
The course fee includes all materials but it may be preferable to have your own drawing pad as it provides more protection to your drawing than loose leafs. You can also bring your own painting supplies if you wish, otherwise, we will be pleased to provide everything that is needed for the course.
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. For teens (12-18 yrs old), we recommand the Sunday painting course or the Sunday drawing course with a mix of adults and teens.
