Drawing & Painting

For students working on a portfolio for art school applications or those who simply love to draw and doodle, the drawing and painting studio is a foundational class in line, tone, composition, and color. Bring a sketch book and your imagination and be inspired by the beautiful New England landscape.

The curriculum includes both traditional and contemporary techniques and will develop confidence with a wide variety of materials and tools. Students will study the human figure, and with parental permission, have the opportunity to draw from a live model. Forms in nature, landscapes, still life, and abstraction may also be among the lessons and exercises. As much as possible, the class is influenced by the ability and interests of members of the class. A maximum of 8 students allows for individual critique and feedback on a daily basis. The session ends with a final project and student exhibit for all studios.
