AGES 8 TO 12 YEARS OLD
This is the age group where talent starts to show in the child. This may have been handed down from a parent or a generation of the past. Look for it in your children. It is a gift and must be encouraged. Children of this age group begin to observe objects in greater detail and are able to perceive three-dimensional space. These students will work from real life settings, photographs and art reproductions to learn the fundamentals of portraiture, still life and landscapes. They will be introduced to various drawing media and they may also choose to paint with acrylics or water colours. Each student will learn how to use and care for their materials. As the students advance, they may begin to develop their own projects to suit their individual interests.
