After last year’s popular class “Drawing Cats,” here is it’s sequel, “Drawing Dogs.” Dogs come in many different breeds and sizes, long or short haired, straight or loop-eared, the anatomy however is basically the same. Children will learn to draw dogs from models and reference photos while exploring many different drawing materials, from pencils to ink, from charcoal to pastel, to watercolour. This course will make young artists not only experts when it comes to dogs, but familiarizes them also with various drawing techniques.

Paper collages rock! – Get your glue sticks out, let your imagination run wild, and paste a colourful world. Children will use scissors to cut out various shapes from different shades of coloured paper to create amazing collages. Antje will introduce a different artist and their artwork each day to provide inspiration for that day’s class.
Children will learn to draw whales and dolphins, sea turtles and seahorses, sharks and reefs, and everything in between. Antje will provide sculptures and reference photos that will aide children in creating a wide range of sea creatures. They will also have access to a variety of drawing and painting materials, so they are able to create an entire ocean that will come to life.

Perspective can be confusing, even for an advanced painter! Perspective is what makes a painting believable, and nothing will turn off your viewer faster than if it is somehow off. In this class you’ll learn the theory behind perspective and be shown demonstrations of the importance of perspective in groups of figures, the human body, still life, and landscapes. This new knowledge will then be applied when we step outside the classroom to do some drawing. This is an informative non-judgemental class, so please step out of your comfort zone, bring your folding chair, and let’s get some perspective!
Ink is often an under-appreciated medium due to its unforgivable nature, but in this course you will learn to harness its lively character. Whether you like to draw and want to challenge yourself, or already paint in watercolours, this class won’t disappoint you no matter your skills. Demonstrations, exercises, and individual guidance will help you succeed. You will learn to balance line and wash, have fun with droppers and spray bottles, and work with a variety of different subject matters including botanical figures, illustrated letters and expressionistic landscapes.
