Summer Classes for Kids and Teens

I have created a schedule for summer classes for kids and teens at Red Door Studios in downtown KCK. You can sign up for classes by following this link, or send me an email/give me a call! (Contact info is at the link.) Here are the classes I have listed thus far:

Drawing Session 1 – Ages 8-12
Mondays, 10am – 12pm 5/31, 6/7, 6/14, 6/21 (4 Weeks)
$120/student includes all materials
In Drawing 1, we will start learning the basics of how to see shapes and proportion, and use line to express the contours of the subject. Drawing will be done from 2D references and from life.
Registration deadline: 5/14/2010

Drawing Session 1 – Teens
Thursdays, 10am – 12pm 6/3, 6/10, 6/17, 6/24 (4 Weeks)
$120/student includes all materials
This course will assume that the student has some drawing experience. We will start by working on good methods to achieve good proportion and interesting lines, and work towards understanding value. Work will be done in graphite, charcoal, and white charcoal working with toned paper in the final projects.
Registration deadline: 5/24/2010

Drawing Session 2 – Ages 8-12
Mondays, 10am – 12pm 7/12, 7/19, 7/26, 8/2 (4 Weeks)

In Drawing 2, students will move from line drawing to shading and value. A strong focus will be on getting correct proportions before moving onto shading, and light logic will be taught as students move into charcoal drawing on toned papers.
Registration deadline: 7/2/2010

Beginning Painting – Teens
Thursdays 10am – 12pm 7/1, 7/8, 7/15, 7/22, 7/29, 8/5 (6 Weeks)
$250/student includes all materials
Students in this class will start with a simple, monochromatic painting to warm-up to the mechanics of a fluid medium before exploring color theory, color mixing, and color schemes. Early work will be done from photographs provided, while later paintings will be done from arrangements made by the individual students.
Registration deadline: 6/21/2010

Perspective Intensive – Teens
Monday through Friday 1-3pm 6/7 – 6/11
$150/student includes all materials
This class will cover 1, 2, 3, and multiple-point perspective! This is a subject that is challenging to many, but will be presented in a logical, step-by-step manner that is easy to understand. We will create images from our imagination using perspective, but will also see how it is visible in the world around us.
Registration deadline: 5/21/2010

People/Faces Intensive – Teens
Monday through Friday 1-3pm 7/12 – 7/16
$150/student includes all materials
Proportions of the head and face will be covered as we also dive in to the characteristics of the individual features themselves. We will strive to understand the underlying structure of the face and features, and learn how to draw and shade them in a realistic way. We will work from photos, historical drawings, and life.
Registration deadline: 7/2/2010

Drawing from Life Intensive – Teens
Monday through Friday 1-3pm 7/26 – 7/30
$150/student includes all materials
If you can learn how to draw what you are looking at, you can draw anything! This class will focus on how to accurately portray anything that lay before you, from a still life to a landscape to a building to a person.
Registration deadline: 7/16/2010
