Fee $400 which includes registration, all materials, and one nut oil and sugar free snack.

During this fun-lled two full day workshop, children will explore and research jungles habitats that incorporate their imaginary ideas of their own design. Students will develop their own interpretation of their composition environment including what kind of animals and inhabitants live in their jungle environment. Students will be stimulated by drawing from animal casts and photographs while instructed how to see and reduce complex forms into simple shapes while drawing. Their vision of what animals live in their environment might even include anthropomorphized creatures like a cross between a lion, and a duck. Students will learn ne art skills such as drawing and painting from observation while adding their own imaginary elements. Horizon line, and perspective will be introduced at age appropriate levels of understanding. The end result will be a 18x24´´drawn and painted composition. PLEASE NOTE: The AIAVAP art instructor may decide to vary the scale of the composition to a smaller size if she feels the child needs to work in a smaller scale, and will make age appropriate modications to meet each child's level of understanding.
DAY 1: We will address researching, and choosing what jungle landscape will be chosen, and drawn in small scale rst. Students will choose of animals to draw from observation from casts and photos to add to their their small scale designs. Students may be able to start to enlarge their small scale idea designs on to larger scale art paper, approximately 18x24. Scale may vary in size and will depend on the age of the students, and ability to draw in large scale.
DAY 2: WE will address the completion of there larger scale drawings. When drawings are completed, students will move into the color theory portion of the workshop where they will be taught the mixing of all colors they desire to have by mixing from primary colors only to create the gray of colors they desire. Color value scale changes may also be introduced based on age appropriateness. Fees include registration, all materials and snack.

Fee $400, which includes registration, materials, and one nut oil, and sugar free snack.
INSTRUCTOR: Hanna Leah Gibbs.
This fun filled workshop will teach your child to create and develop their very own character, and develop their story on a ve panel comic story board (12x18”) to tell the visual narrative of their chosen character.
Day 1: We will introduce the concept of a story board comic strip. Students will start planning out their story and what will be happening in each of the ve panels of their story board. We will then start creating their character. Students will be taught simple shape identication drawing using wooden artist models, plaster casts and photos. For younger students this lesson will be simplied a bit and less complicated casts will be used. After their character is created they will proceed to draw a side view of the same character. Once their character is fully developed they will sketch out a thumbnail version, very small scale, of their story board. Where applicable, an intro to horizon line perspective will be taught. Their character can live in any imaginary environment the artist thinks up. At the end of day one, students will have developed their character and thumbnail sketch of their story board. Some students may move on to start drawing their large size panels.
Day 2: Students will be introduced to enlarging and developing their story from their thumbnail version to a 12x18" comic strip using the simple shape identication drawing taught during day one. Once the whole story has been transferred they will be taught the inking process - rst on their thumbnail versions and then onto their nal story board. Color theory and blending will be introduced with colored pencils and markers after they nish their inking process.
PLEASE NOTE: Parents are required to supply a cold lunch, refrigeration available, which is nut oil and sugar free. We will oer a LATE PICK UP option at an additional fee of $20 per half hour after 4:30pm and is to be paid directly to the instructor on the day of the workshop. Pick up can be no later than 5:30pm.
