This fun and challenging course for 11- to 13-year-olds offers young artists an exciting opportunity to develop and expand their drawing skills and to explore collage and mixed media processes. Each class will be structured with drawing fundamentals taught primarily in the morning sessions (quality of line, contour, gesture, basic shapes, tonal drawing, perspective), and then each afternoon, expand the drawing experience to include collage and mixed media. The classes will also investigate expressive and experimental mark making as well as drawing in nature during a field trip to High Park. Students will work with a wide range of drawing materials (such as charcoal, oil pastels and conte); ink and paint media as well as intriguing found imagery and materials for collage. Throughout the week, we will investigate drawing, collage and mixed media through a wide range of subjects and themes such as favourite objects and the still life, flowers, foliage and natural specimens, the human figure, landscape and weird and wonderful imaginary worlds.
