Intensive drawing course for returning students, taught in the Classical Atelier Style of the 19th Century Masters. This atelier-style drawing course mirrors the foundational, level 1 curriculum of classical atelier programs such as Studio Incamminati, where instructor Michela Mansuino studied and currently teaches. In these progressively oriented Saturday art lessons, the fine art objective is to develop drawing and seeing skills for young artists, ranging in age from 8 – 18. The Charles Bargue Drawing Course is introduced during the second semester. The mastery of skills are — 1). Successfully launching an envelope around the compositional elements in the still life arrangement 2). Successfully determining the correct tilts and angles of the still life arrangement 3). Successfully describing perspective in terms of the planes of the cube and the ellipsis of the circle 4). Consistently separating true light from true shadow 5). Consistently calibrating the value of the overall still life arrangement First-time students begin by learning the three important moments of the start of a drawing: 1) the envelope, 2) the separation of light from shadow, and 3) the five-value scale. No matter what age, Michela will work with your young artist at their own level with their own personal set-up in their own space. Supplies included in tuition fee. Class cancellation due to teacher illness, inclement weather, or school closure will be rescheduled for November 9. PLEASE NOTE: CLASS ON OCTOBER 26 WILL BE HELD IN THE GRANGE BASEMENT AT 9818 GEORGETOWN PIKE.
