Art for the developing young mind (6 -14 years old)

Drawing is the foundation skill of art, and learning it allows the freedom to make art in any medium. Drawing facilitates learning and self-exploration, which ultimately expands creative thinking skills and enhance learning in young children.

 In my art lessons I cover the basics of drawing to teach children to draw things they imagine, observe or recall. Children have the freedom to choose their subject matter while I facilitate the process with guidelines to expand their artistic skills and develop their creativity and self-expression through technical drawing exercises.

The aim is to make art fun and to encourage children to be inventive, observant and inquisitive. I will introduce children to the following mediums and art principles:

Mediums:

Watercolour, collage, acrylics, charcoal, pencil and pen drawings, printing

Art principles:

Line, texture, form, tonal value, contrast, composition, basic colour theory, drawing styles
