6-Week Summer Art Exploration Course for Kids (Ages 6-10)
Dive into a world of creativity this summer with our specially designed 6-week art course for young artists aged 6-10. Each week, students will embark on a new adventure, exploring different aspects of art, from fantasy landscape sketching to mastering colour theory with paints and pastels. Our course is crafted to inspire imagination, encourage creativity, and teach valuable art techniques in a fun, engaging environment. Here's what your child will experience each week:Week 1: Fantasy Landscape Sketching
Unleash Imagination: Kids begin their artistic journey by sketching fantastical landscapes that leap straight out of their imagination. Floating islands, magical forests, and cities in the clouds are just the beginning. Through story-driven art, students will not only draw but also create tales about their mystical worlds.Week 2: Summer Landscape Art and Perspective
See the World Differently: This week focuses on introducing the basics of perspective to create depth and dimension. Simple explanations of horizon lines and vanishing points will guide students as they draw mountains and roads, learning about foreground, middleground, and background.Week 3: Imaginary Worlds in Clay
Shape Your Dreams: Students will sculpt their own three-dimensional landscapes from an imaginary world, using clay to form unique and fantastical features. This week encourages spatial thinking, creativity, and collaboration as students pair up to expand on each other's visions.Week 4: Exploring Colour Theory
Paint with All the Colors: Dive into the vibrant world of colour theory! Students will learn about primary, secondary, and complementary colours to create evocative landscape scenes that reflect different times of day or seasons, enhancing their understanding of color mixing.Week 5: Glazing Imaginary World Landscapes
Add Color to Your Creations: Building on their clay sculptures from Week 3, students will learn glazing techniques to add vibrant color to their 3D landscapes. This session combines the tactile pleasure of sculpture with the visual impact of colour.Week 6: Advanced Perspective in Colourful Landscapes
Mastering Perspective with Pastels: The final week brings a new layer of complexity with two-point perspective, challenging students to create detailed landscapes that include buildings or bridges. Using pastels, they'll bring their colorful landscapes to life, applying all the skills they've developed over the course
