JULY WORKSHOP, Summer Break

One-Day Workshop

Friday, July 14, 12:30 - 3:00 pm


Exploring Sea Life —The mysterious and breathtakingly beautiful underwater world inspires students to imagine—to dream—to create.  Students will focus on artistic expression and specific art elements—texture, line, shape and form.  Students will explore the depth of the sea, while designing and painting on canvas—fish, shells, seahorses, corals, seaweed and other sea life.   Expressive fun!   Instructor: Carol Ligon.  Workshop Fee: $45 per workshop.  All materials are included.

These workshops offer artistic expression, where kids develop an awareness of the art elements — Line, Shape, Form, Color, Texture, Space and Value.  The Oil Painting Workshop is intended to inspire kids to grab their toolboxes and get busy and paint.  As the students create art, they paint through a process, allowing their artistic expressions to display in a natural way.  These experiences will help to develop each child’s own emerging style of painting.
