Experimental painting and drawing

This Class will follow all mandated health protocols as set forth by the BC Ministry of Health.

Discover the world of abstraction and expression through painting and drawing with local artist Grace Chen! Through play and investigation, young artists will learn the fundamentals of art and design with a focus on each student’s unique interests. Students will complete a series of projects that explore basic colour mixing, painting and drawing techniques, and the relationship between art and emotion. 

Please note: This class will have students on various skill levels. On the first day of class, we will complete an introductory lesson in colour mixing and colour meanings. Students will engage in creating a self-portrait using colours that reflect each student's unique interests and personality. In the following classes, students will further develop their understanding of colour and contrast and expand on their natural creativity.
