Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Children's Course (ages 9-12)
This beginning course in drawing is designed especially for children, ages 9-12. It is based upon the method developed by Dr. Betty Edwards and described in her book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. In this course children learn the perceptual skills necessary for realistic drawing, which include the perception of edge, space, angles, proportion, light, and shadow. Course combines brief lectures and studio exercises, which guide the students through the systematic learning process. In eight weeks, students advance from symbolic images to actually drawing what they see.
First class materials: $10 lab fee payable to instructor at first class meeting for supplies.
