NCSP 202: Drawing 101 (Grades 6-8) $375.00

Course Description

Location: St Paul's Schoo. Grades 6-8: Designed for students who want to improve drawing skills and work towards more realistic drawings, this course focuses on drawing from observation. Students are guided through a carefully sequenced, step-by-step process designed to develop the student's perception and thinking skills. Based upon exercises in Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, this approach has been successful in improving students' ability to draw realistically, even for those who think they cannot draw. As such, it provides the young artist with an excellent bridge between drawing symbolically and working more realistically.
