Visual Arts

Conservatory Visual Arts classes take a classical approach to teaching drawing and painting. The program goes beyond arts and crafts. Students will learn how “to see” in a new way. They learn to draw as if their hands are an extension of his or her eyes. Students will learn same way that the artists during the Renaissance did: by studying and copying from the great masters. They did it for years before they became masters themselves. Candidates for the Visual Arts Conservatory program must have the desire, passion and maturity for art. The ability to do art is not always given through inheritance; it must also be learned through constant practice.

Materials: are extremely important. Students will be taught not only what to use, but also how to use it and take care of the materials.


Oil Pastels

(about 7 weeks)

 

 

Watercolor

(about 7 weeks)

 

Painting is like drawing with a brush; therefore drawing skills are continuously stressed. However, the subject matter should become more 3-dimensional. Students will learn the basic techniques of painting with a brush, brush manipulation, and care. Students will also learn the use of watercolor terms such as dry brush, wash, and glazing.

Acrylic Painting

(about 8 weeks)


Students will learn application and manipulation of materials. The binder in acrylic paint is a plastic synthetic. Therefore, acrylics dry quickly and are water soluble.

Students will also learn:

- Brushes and paint care.
- Arrangement of color in the color palette
- Mixing specific hues.
- Paint application, brush techniques and clean-up.

Program will include:

- Still life
- Animals
- Landscapes
- Master Studies.

Impasto = paint apply thick

Morbidezza ( Italian delicate) = an extreme delicacy and softness of coloring in painting.

Advanced students at this stage will be able to choose or create their own subject matter. However using their knowledge of the great masters composition and symbolism in their paintings.
