As artists, we'll experiment with tools, materials, and techniques to make discoveries. Using artistic disciplines, like painting, printmaking, and sculpture, we'll engage in purposeful play to see what happens when we create with concepts such as viscosity, friction, and balance.

NCSP 206: Drawing and Painting Inspired by Nature (Grades 9-12) $346.00

Course Description

Location: St. Paul's.Grades 9-12. Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artistic creating throughout the ages. Intended for the student who is moved by beauty and wishes to respond artistically to the colors, textures and forms found in nature, this course is a remarkable journey in collaborating with nature to create very personal, meaningful art. Rather than simply drawing from life, students are asked to think critically about subject matter choices and points of view. Beginning with open-ended prompts to help determine personally meaningful or symbolic subject matter for life-drawing, students respond visually by seeking places, objects, and scenes to communicate personal narratives. Students think deeply and critically about how to infuse a work from life with symbolic meaning, mood, and personal style via distinct personal mark-making and expression.

NCSP 302: Visual Thinking through Mixed Media Collage (Grades 9-12) $346.00

Course Description

Location: St. Paul's. Grades 9-12. This course delves into how an image is created, using thematic and/or conceptual ideas as the basis for composing finished pieces of art. Students begin with existing sketchbooks, images, and ideas as a starting point, and as fuel for further developing new images and drawings based on a purposeful theme, idea, or concept. Emphasis is on thinking critically about how and what to convey via visual imagery, problem-solving ideas from beginning to end, analyzing the efficacy of developed images (self as well as peers), and developing a repertoire of visual thinking techniques. Numerous images are generated, collected, sketched, drawn, re-drawn, or found, all for the purpose of developing collages that combine images with other wet and dry art media. A hands-on, exploratory and process-oriented course, students are guided to develop a cohesive body of three to four pieces for show.
