Service Description

Does your student spend hours drawing on their iPad or android tablet? We can use these devices as we learn more about the elements and principles of design in art. Your child can get a rich art curriculum, with different brushes and mediums - all from their tablet or iPad! In the "Drawing School" series we will explore different elements of drawing. In "Value and Shading" we will look at light sources and how shadows are cast, the different types of shadows and highlights and how to "get it right" when sketching. **This class assumes an understanding of whatever digital app your student works in! I will not be teaching the apps in this class, rather USING the apps to explore art history through the various mediums and methods they provide** if your student needs to learn how to use Procreate or Ibispaint, please see my Intro series before enrolling in the "Drawing" classes! Through the eight weeks of our study of value we will define value and work with different means of creating value. We will work with hatching, cross hatching, stippling and scribbling as we explore different value scales. Additionally, we will look at abstract value composition. Week 1: Stippling, hatching, cross hatching and scribbling value charts, Stippling practice while changing light sources. Homework: Same three objects with hatching, cross hatching and scribbling. Symmetry bug Week 2: Cast shadow, form shadow, reflective highlight with shading, stippling, hatching.
