Flexible, online courses, led in real-time
Online courses offer flexible access to instructional materials (e.g., demonstration videos and handouts), which are combined with real-time video classes and feedback.
Students are divided into a Lower and Upper Academy, roughly 1st & 2nd grade and 3rd-6th grade.
$40 per student, plus supplies. Sessions run in 5 week segments.
Every week students:
- Study a historic art-work, draw it, and post their reactions to it
- Follow a video-lesson that introduces a concept and then gives a demonstration. These build on each other so that by the end of the project students have 1 final project.
- Meet via video conference with the teacher and/or group and present their artwork and are able to ask questions in real-time.
NEXT SESSION BEGINS FEBRUARY 26th, with a Spring break the final week in March.
Artist, Scientist, Explorer.
Students learn about Jon Audubon, who was an Artist & Explorer. They learn how he categorized all the birds in North America in a treatise of watercolor paintings called Birds of America. Audubon discovered 25 new species and 12 new subspecies.
Students will learn drawing skills as they draw their own animal figurines & a background, then create a block print from their drawing.
