Kids Teaching Kids (KTK): Pencil Drawing Camp
July 23-27, 2018, 12:30-3:30pm
Teacher: Mihir Joshi, age 12
Theme: Mythical Creatures
Mihir enjoys spending his time creating art while learning various techniques. He is excited to teach pencil art to other kids. The theme is Mythical Creatures, in which he will choose black and colored pencils. Advantages of working with pencils is that they are extremely lightweight and portable. They don't require any intensive set-up - you can just take them wherever you go, open your sketchbook or drawing pad, et voila! An art making session with colored pencils is just as quick and easy to clean up as it is to set up. This makes pencils very non-messy compared to other art mediums.
Mihir has created many art pieces in different medium. Water color, pastels, colored pencils, sidewalk chalk are different media he has worked with. If asked to choose his favorite medium he will name all of them as his top choice. He has won art fair contests at school, while his latest one is the Young Artist Award from the Junior Duck Stamp contest 2018. He has created greeting cards from his art and sold it to friends and family to raise money for his Robotics Team.
Mihir also has a funny bone. One summer he created an abstract art and titled it, 'joy, light and beauty'. Here is his explanation on abstract art, 'it is something young people don't understand and old people pay a lot of money to buy it'.
