Classical Painting Techniques

with Pete Smith

This program is designed for those who have tried painting, but would like to have a better understanding of classical approaches. Learn time-honoured techniques that have been passed down from the Renaissance to the Impressionist period. Students will learn the methods of building a painting by reproducing works of traditional painters such as Velazquez, Vermeer, Sargent and Pissarro. Effective techniques of transferring the drawing, underpainting/overpainting, dead colouring, scumbling, glazing and painting alla prima will all become familiar in the course of study. Students are encouraged to work on projects in either oils or acrylics.

Drawing for Beginners

with Michael Antkowiak

This workshop is designed for beginners and those wishing to improve their drawing skills, as well as refine their understanding of visual language. Using pencils, conté and charcoal, students will learn fundamental drawing techniques such as line weights, shading and highlighting. This condensed program will help students become confident with the basic tools of visual expression.

Abstract Painting for Beginners

This is an inspiring, process-oriented course for those who are willing to delve into the creative journey towards abstract painting. Designed for the beginner painter with some painting experience, students will be encouraged to explore spontaneity and experimentation and to develop conceptual ideas. Helpful visual information on modern art will be provided with an emphasis on composition, balance, colour, form and symbolism, the representation of motion and the superimposition of images in the organization of space. Media will mainly include acrylics and liquid acrylics. Collage and various media or materials of the student's choice can be introduced to experiment with different techniques.

White Flight in Silicon Valley

by david46208

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- By most measures, Monta Vista High here and Lynbrook High, in nearby San Jose, are among the nation's top public high schools. Both boast stellar test scores, an array of advanced-placement classes and a track record of sending graduates from the affluent suburbs of Silicon Valley to prestigious colleges.
But locally, they're also known for something else: white flight. Over the past 10 years, the proportion of white students at Lynbrook has fallen by nearly half, to 25% of the student body. At Monta Vista, white students make up less than one-third of the population, down from 45% -- this in a town that's half white

What are the nearest summer art classes for teens?

im looking for art classes for 13 years olds. anyone know where i can find some in the southern california region in van nuys or somewhere near it.

Since you're only 13, community colleges are out of the question so.........check out a list of classes offered by your city's recreation department. Usually every a couple of months, every household gets a newsletter from their city and they list classes that they offer for kids, young adults and senior citizens.....classes such as art,dance,yoga,etc are offered for a small fee and you meet a couple times a week or so at your city's recreation center...... You can visit your city hall, their website or just give them a quick call...they will provide you information that way too. Goodlu…

Is summer-art classes hyphenated?

In general, many two-word phrases are two separate words when used as a noun, verb or adverb but take a hyphen when used as an adjective. Double check the way the word(s) is (are) being used. An art class in the summer is Not hyphenated.
