Learning the Language of Art

March 14—18 Ages 10-12
Art supplies included. $20/child/class
Registration required 705-286-3763
Instructed by Laurie Carmount, Curator

Classes offer information and activities to understand elements and principles (line, shape/form, color, texture, space, balance, pattern, proportion, emphasis, unity/variety, movement) which are used to describe art. Learning about different terms extends language and lends to a better ability to speak about visual art. This also allows for greater creativity and imagination.
Each day involves a different element and principle term that will be explored through visual information, worksheets and creation of an art project.
