923 Youth Studio is a visual art course designed for 11-13 year olds. Through drawing, painting, printing, collage, and 3-dimensional work, students will be introduced to various techniques and media in order to develop their own artistic language and expression. This includes drawing (one life drawing session with a clothed model) and painting from observation and imagination exploring line, shape, texture, perspective and composition as well as preparing surfaces and colour mixing. Collage, assemblage, and 3-dimensional explorations will include various materials including paper, wire, wood, found objects and natural elements. We will also explore mono printing, creating stamps and designing textures and patterns. The students will be introduced to artists throughout history including contemporary artists in connection with their projects, and will also go on field trips to museums and/or galleries to see and discuss the artwork on site.
