Project Description

This fun and engaging residency is designed to teach students the fundamentals of drawing and design, through lessons that build upon one another to make these art making activities accessible to all levels and learners. Students will gain an understanding of several different line drawing, shading, and designing techniques, concepts, and vocabulary and enjoy adding their own creativity to this framework to create a small portfolio during “studio time” with individual attention from the residency artist. This residency will empower students to transform any trepidations about drawing into an “I can do this!” attitude

Final Product
Students will create a small portfolio that contains line drawings,  2 value continuums, 2 designs that exemplify various shading techniques, and a final drawing project using a combination of the techniques taught during residency.
