Exploring Art

Teacher: Deepthi Ravi

Explore Art through various mediums and create 6 beautiful masterpieces by working with an artist in small class size sessions. Each 2-hour class will involve learning of approaches, techniques, and how-to's in the following mediums:
Soft pastels - These are chalk like color sticks that are very smooth to work with. The masterpiece we create with these will be on a mixed media paper.
Water colors - Pigments are mixed with water to get appropriate consistency to do specific shading. Paintings will be done on watercolor boards.
Charcoal - Hard and soft charcoals will be used to create sketches and to blend them with tortillions (a drawing tool). Sketches will be done on mixed media paper.
White charcoal – is almost like chalk but smoother and used on black or brown sketch sheets.
Acrylic – These are paints soluble in water. They have high opacity and the paintings will be done on canvas.
