Group Art Lessons
Group Art Lessons
Enjoy art in a fun group environment in these weekly 60 minute group art lessons. Beginner, or with some experience in art, group art classes provide a comfortable and creative setting to develop artistic skills. Starting with combinations of a few lines and shapes to make simple pictures, beginners develop their confidence to take on more complex subjects. Flexibility in the classes allows students to make diverse art works, and add personal details to each picture.
From early classes basic portraiture skills and colouring techniques are learned, using coloured pencil. Moving on, eager artists practise newly learned skills on more complex subjects and themes, such as animals, landscapes, human form and cartooning.
Throughout various activities, students are taught more advanced techniques to embellish their artwork. This includes basic to intermediate knowledge of shading, colour transition, colour-wheel, proportions, and texture. All these aspects are a stepping stone to applying the previously learned techniques in other media.
While exploring new media, for example oil pastel, watercolour, collage and crafts, budding artists are often given free range as to the subject of their artwork. This allows for the development of creativity and imagination.
Through this exploration, students are given collective and individual instruction to teach them more complex artistic aspects, like movement, composition, depth, and even ways to enhance their creativity.
In more advanced group art lessons, artists learn in detail about three-dimensional objects. Still-life and perspective projects use all previously learned techniques, while presenting some new challenges.
Continuous projects of increasing difficulty level encourage the group’s pupils to practise skills and hone their creativity. The group component is enhanced by the experience of collaborative projects, when all students work on a single art piece collectively. Collaboration is useful in expanding each individual’s creativity, and promoting a team-friendly attitude.
A blend of technique, creativity, and group participation, this class is a great choice for those who want to learn Visual Arts in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
