DRAWING

 

Ages 10+

2:00 - 3:00

This class is open to aspiring artists of all levels! Throughout the year they will explore color, shape, texture and line -- beginning with still life and progressing to interpreting famous works of art. T.J. will also take the students on a journey through time as he weaves history and 

 

the cultural influences that affected the great artists the students will be studying.

While we will continue to emphasize the individual vision of the students exploring art with individual challenges, this year we will introduce a themed challenge where, over the arc of the year, they will be creating, writing and drawing their own children’s book!

This will involve many aspects, from character creation to story development (even retelling classic tales) to the concepts of layout and putting the book together! We will look at famous examples and methods -- pencil, pen, watercolor, and collage -- to create the art as the books develop.

This class will be offered online and on site when we return to campus.

WRITING

CREATIVELY

Ages 10-15

3:00 - 4:00

Join award-winning writer Teel James Glenn as he helps would-be and current writers explore the whys and whats of creating exciting, action-filled short stories by examining the classics by the masters--and by writing and critiquing their own new masterpieces! The course will begin by reading and examining classics, with each story focusing on some aspect of the craft--point-of-view, time, scene setting, motivation, engaging the senses, or painting clear, logical action scenes.

 

The students will then follow up by writing their own versions of some the scences in the classic tale and then creating their own short stories, reading their work out loud, and giving each other solid, positive feedback.

Stories by E.A. Poe, Richard Connell, Ambrose Bierce, Rudyard Kipling, James Thurber, A Conan Doyle, Saki, O. Henery, R.E. Howard, Guy De Maupassant, and others will be read.

This class will be offered online and on site when we return to campus.
