Leonardo's Apprentice: Ages 5-8 (Multiple Media Focus)
When Leonardo da Vinci was young, he apprenticed with an older more experienced artist to learn the art trade. This early art experience introduced Leonardo to various materials and techniques: grinding and mixing pigments, learning geometry, mixing of colors, preparing panels, working of clay, and the actual act of painting itself. Using the old and modern masters as inspiration, students learn the fundamental techniques and principles of drawing and painting. In this course, young apprentices are introduced to basic art concepts including use of color, line, shape, texture, and composition, while learning a range of technical methods used by the masters themselves. Students learn to use various drawing and painting materials in a nurturing atmosphere, which stresses experimentation and exploration. The course is designed to heighten sensory awareness and build self-confidence in fundamental art making skills.
