Description

The foundational elements of the drawing will emerge through practicing still life such as fruit, flowers, or household items. Students will learn a step by step approach to building up a drawing and the understanding the qualities of a good composition. This will improve their observation skills and strengthen their natural drawing ability.

This is a great way to learn the basics of drawing like freehand drawing, pencil shading in 2D and 3D forms, still life, conceptual and creative drawing, and many more. Explore the world of design by practicing the different types of designs like geometric, symmetric, floral and freehand designs. Learn the elements of visual arts and practice new techniques. The importance of each element - line, shape, form, texture, and space will be emphasized.



About Drawing Foundations Curriculum:  The class will focus on building skills of drawing which will include lines, angles, edge, and concepts like perspective, proportion, shadow and light, tone and gradations of tone.  Your child will learn to develop these skills of drawing through practice during the two year curriculum.

About the Teaching Artist: Pratibha is an artist and a visual art teacher. She received a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts (Painting) in 1998 from India. Since then she has been practicing and teaching painting in different styles. She has worked in many different schools, including St. Paul`s English School and Oakridge International School, India and Hindi USA in Piscataway.

She has recently been working on an Indian art form called the Mysore Traditional. This art form began in India around 16th century. These paintings are done with watercolors and have a unique technique, which involves using pure gold on the painting. She learned this art from her father S. Krishnananda Raju and grandfather Y.Subramanya Raju, who was the Palace artist in the Mysore Kingdom. This technique has been passed down in the family for generations and now is a part of the fine art curriculum in some of the art colleges.

Pratibha also works on figurative compositions and is presently working on Landscapes in oils and watercolors in an attempt to capture the zest of Nature. She has exhibited her paintings at libraries in Long Island NY and Piscataway NJ.
