An escape from the busy sights and sounds of Manhattan is just an 8-minute boat ride away. With the natural surroundings of Governors Island as their guide, young artists will learn to use a variety of mediums, such as modeling clay, acrylic, and watercolors, to represent the tranquil scenes around them. Students will have the unique opportunity to create their artworks “en plein air”, meaning setting up their supplies and working outside! This week’s lessons will develop student’s composition skills as they learn about sculptural relief, observational technique, and perspective.
