Fundamentals of Drawing (FoD) Camps
This is a series of camps with unique themes, which will focus specifically on teaching kids basic drawing technique, such as 3/4 views, perspective, composition, shading, etc. This is not a painting class and we will mostly use pencil, pen, and charcoal to teach our students. (For painting, please see our mixed media or watercolor camps.)
The camps are set up in two parts: the first three days consist of technique-based lessons while the last two will focus on applying what students have learned in their themed projects.
Students are encouraged to bring pictures or objects pertaining to the appropriate themes in order to develop good observation and detail-orientation skills.
Observe & ThinkOptional homework encouraging students to really observe and think about shapes in everyday life
Figure PracticeThe importance of proportions and perspective is shown and aided by the placement of other objects in the scene
