Academy Mask Policy – Fall 2021

 

Any student under the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their camp/class. For any participant age 18+, masks are highly recommended and encouraged regardless of vaccination status.

 


 

This class will introduce the students to the fundamentals of drawing, including light & shadow, shape, design and composition. Students will also be introduced to the tools of the trade, including learning the pencil scale and different types of paper, such as archival and acid papers and the differences between the two. 

This class is suitable for beginner to advanced students as the lessons and projects will be geared toward individual skill and interest levels.  Because each student is unique, projects may be altered and one-on-one instruction will be given to suit each student’s skills, talents, knowledge, and interest level.

Students that have advanced skills or have mastered the basic fundamentals will be encouraged to develop their style and technique in the media. Instructor will guide and suggest new techniques and styles to help develop the student’s skills. All supplies provided.
