Students learn the basics of drawing while experimenting with new media including design-quality markers, colored pencils, chalk and oil pastels, watercolor and much more. This guided step-by-step method improves visual perception skills by breaking down the subject matter for young children to see and follow along. Parents and teachers report an improvement in fine motor skill development as well as handwriting. Theme: Living Rainbows Students will learn about the color wheel and use that knowledge to draw, paint, and collage colorful animals in nature such as a butterfly, tropical bird, and under water scenes. Look forward to lots of painting in this semester!
