Participants will create observational drawings based on individually selected themes and objects in the museum. Students will create sketchbooks for daily use in the galleries and studios, experiment using a variety of drawing materials and styles, as well as complete several large final drawings for inclusion in their portfolios. The group will discuss historical and contemporary art, examine professional artists’ portfolios explore a variety of drawing techniques, and exercise individual and group critiques.
Our Artist’s Studio Experience offers 6th-12th graders the opportunity to work with a local practicing artist from a specialized field of fine art. Participants will discover art techniques used throughout history and learn about art terms and artists specific to the week’s theme as they create their own works of art. Each week, participants will also see examples of the teaching artist's portfolio, and have the opportunity to converse about art careers, portfolio development and the vast applications of art. Magnet school students may work toward completing summer art requirements and all participants will work to build an art portfolio. A great summer experience for young artists!
