Week 1.   Follow YOur Rainbow

July  10 to 14

This week we explore locations around the world in a variety of media. Using subjects of distant exotic cities, landscapes, plants and animals, students develop ideas through drawings, printmaking, collage, and 3D sculpture. Each day starts off with an hour of Drawing basics to further develop students understanding, perception and skill in form, perspective, scale, shape recognition, shading, and several other drawing fundamentals. This leads into the projects of Mono Printing one of a kind images with a variety of textures and techniques in ink, Map Collage Paintings, using paper maps cut up into forms, added into your painting. Another special project of 3D sculpture is all about creating Little Worlds, a micro landscape, interior space, structure or habitat out of a variety of materials mounted on a base and viewed from all sides. Rounding out the week students experiment and play with printed material as a base for exploring the qualities of Text as Texture for a painting. 

Week 3.  A little Dab'll Do Ya 

July 24 to 28

​This week we focus on techniques and effects colour mediums have on a variety of surfaces and materials. Starting each day off with an hour of

Drawing Fundamentals as a jump off point, preparing for the various projects, enabling students to research and map out directions they want to explore.

Foam Stamp Prints are easy to make and a great way to to understand the art of printmaking with each student creating a limited edition of colourful unique images to share with friends and family.

A Soft Sculpture created from an acrylic painting, sewn and stuffed, makes for an  original  3D form unique to each student. Along with this is a project of Painted Ceramics which is an ancient and time honored way of painting that is both durable and decorative. Another medium that has a long history is Gold Leafing that students can apply to a painting in order to put in some sizzle with this reflective material, adding to  and highlighting areas of interest.
