Drawing / Painting—Online (Ages 14-18)

Focus on drawing and painting as exciting tools for organizing thoughts, experiences, and images. Develop and strengthen fundamental skills as you work with line, volume, space, form, and palette and investigate a range of traditional and contemporary materials such as charcoal, graphite, ink, and water-based paints. Virtual visits to the Art Institute of Chicago and discussion of practicing artists supplement the studio experience. This course is recommended for both beginners and those wanting to improve and develop their current skills and ideas.

"The course content was great and I learned more about different artists and different art techniques. I also learned a new medium to work with: gouache. The course was challenging but not too challenging. It was overall really fun and I liked seeing other people's artworks."
