Drawing Animals 101 with Denise Wey:
Kids love drawing animals. In this class we will be drawing many of our favorite ones, using shading to produce a 3D effect and learning some pencil textures to indicate fur. We will draw claws and talons and wings and feathers! Drawing well takes patience and practice but it’s so rewarding to see yourself progress when you love to draw!
Manga Studio with Denise Wey:
The focus in this session of classes will be to receive guidance and work on drawing the human form! Whether the student wishes to draw people with more realism or like Manga is up to the young artists. (Manga/Animae is about drawing people, after all ) Drawing people takes practice, patience and is a valuable skill to have if you love to draw. This is quite a bit of fun!
You Can Paint with Denise Wey:
In this session, kids will be painting with acrylics on real canvas! Roll up your sleeves and put on an apron and let’s paint! Guided drawing and composition are introduced and practiced before the painting fun begins. Young artists learn and practice color mixing and brushwork skills; showing light, shadows, reflections, blending, and more by working with the instructor to complete several paintings. Each class is dedicated to practicing specific skills to become a better painter. Great for beginning painters and returning students too! All materials are included.
