Wild at Art will be offering Summer Camps starting this August. The camps will be week-long with 5 consecutive days starting at 10am and ending at noon. The first camp begins August 6th to 10th with a learn to draw course. We’ll follow that up with another learn to draw course from the 13th to the 17th of August. From August 20th to the 24th we’ll be hosting a learn to paint camp. Be sure to sign up – it opens the door to all our other weekly courses. See you this summer!
Learn to Draw
An introduction to drawing, and the fundamental concepts that are the basis of all art. Students will use pencil, charcoal, ink and quill, pencil crayon, and watercolor wash to develop different drawing techniques and skills, beginning with lines and “seeing”. As classes progress, students will advance onto shape, value, texture, perspective and composition. You will be taught proportions and measurement techniques, as well as the 4 ways to create depth in your drawings. This course is held once a week for 5 consecutive weeks, totaling 10 hours of professional, hands-on instruction. No experience necessary! Students must complete Learn to Draw before advancing on to Learn to Paint.
Learn to Paint
In this extension of our Learn to Draw course, students will be introduced to the world of watercolors. You will learn about colour theory, and explore various watercolor techniques, including resist, glazing, flat wash, graduated wash, wet-on-wet, scratching out, dry brush and much more. At the end of this course, students will go home with a finished value painting, as well as a finished watercolor piece. This course is held once a week for 5 consecutive weeks, totalling 10 hours of professional, hands-on instruction. Students must have completed Learn to Draw before registering for this course.
Weekly classes continue with progressive instruction in a variety of mediums, including pencil, charcoal, watercolor, acrylic, chalk pastel, oil pastel, watercolor pencil, ink, clay and much more! Students will learn about art history, as well as modern day art, and the different styles and techniques throughout. Classes will be given personalized art projects best suited to their age and abilities. Some projects may only take a day to complete, while others may take a few weeks. Students will also be allowed their own projects between classwork, where they may select the subject and medium of their choosing and will receive as much or as little guidance as they need to finish with the desired result. Through weekly lessons, students will be encouraged to discover their creativity and develop their own artistic style. Each lesson is 2 hours long, and held once per week. Students must complete Learn to Draw and Learn to Paint courses before registering for weekly classes.
