Learning the principles of creating art, with illustrator Lena Shiffman, is lots of fun! Explore drawing, painting, sculpture, and more. Ms. Lena’s gentle approach encourages and guides students. Visit different media such as pencil, acrylics, watercolor paint, clay, and paper. Students use still lifes… stuffed toys, taxidermied animals, photos, and something brought from home. We might also go outdoors to draw nature! The fundamental principles will be the focus: understanding color, composition, and the proper use of materials. Don’t miss this chance to have your blooming young artist put his or her heart and soul into creating keepsakes! Ms. Lena works well with beginners to very advanced students. Remember to dress in old clothing. Since practice makes perfect, students are encouraged to sign up for one or more session. STUDIO TIME for ARTISTS-IN-TRAINING.
