Discover the many ways to represent a character’s persona through art! In this mixed media class, young artists will be challenged to depict a character through a variety of 2D and 3D art projects. After a series of brainstorming and sketching exercises, they will experiment with fundamental elements of art, including scale, color, and texture, to bring a character to life. As the week progresses, artists will explore color theory and paint mixing. This class will develop your child’s techniques in portraiture using various media.
