Jan. 31, 14-Apr. 25, 2014—Fr
Period: 2 year old Classroom; 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Grace Evangelical Free Church
Instructor(s): Mrs. Nancy Waggener
Older children will enjoy learning the broad appeal of expressing oneself with pencils. Students who have already taken art with Mrs. Waggener will find pencils an interesting challenge, as well as a change of pace from markers. Projects will include drawing from nature as well as still life and the human body. Using a range of pencils, the students will explore sketching and planning, shading techniques, positive and negative spaces, perspective, and composition. Initially, students will draw along with the instructor, but will draw independently as they gain experience and confidence.
THERE WILL BE WEEKLY HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS! A STUDENT WHO MISSES THREE CLASSES AND/OR FAILS TO COMPLETE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS WILL NEED TO MEET WITH MRS. WAGGENER AND ONE OF HIS PARENTS BEFORE CONTINUING IN THIS CLASS.
This course is designed for the full year, but will require registration for each session. Students enrolling in the fall are expected to continue in the spring session. Mrs. Waggener has been teaching drawing to home schoolers (including her own four children) for 20 years.
Supplies (which may be purchased at Michael's or any art/hobby store) needed for the very first session: Pencils: 2B, 4B, 6B at the minimum. Eraser: 1 Kneaded and 1 hard pink or white 2 Papermate Flair black felt tip markers
