ART: Graphites & Life Drawing - Advanced

This course is a life-based drawing class that focuses on learning the different elements of shading, proportion, and composition. Students will explore techniques using graphite, blending tools, and charcoal to bring three dimensionality to their work. The course is designed to teach the students how to train their eye to see a three dimensional still life and draw the subject using line, space, and depth to elevate their work into realism. Classes range from Introduction - Intermediate - Advanced Graphites. Intermediate Graphites teaches students how to draw proportionately while introducing depth into their work like foreground, midground, and background. Classes are an hour and a half long once a week. Classes are an hour long once a week.

This is a class for artists 3-5 years old. This class targets students that need time to work on their first motor skills. CLASS STRUCTURE Every project is based on a different children's book. Each class is broken into four components: Story time, drawing, coloring, and crafting. After reading a children's book, students are taught how to decompose the characters in the book into the 5 elements of shape and redraw them. Drawing helps students retain information about the subject 8 times faster and longer. All artwork is retained by the teacher and returned at the end of the term in a bound portfolio. Crafts go home with the student each week. BENEFITS The structure and lessons of this class encourage visual perception and hand-eye coordination. Other benefits we have noticed in the past include improved handwriting, fine-motor skills, shape recognition, and confidence. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Students are expected to stay in the class for a full calendar year (four consecutive semesters). Each term features brand new projects and books. Advancing to the next level, Getting Ready I, is based on how well the student is able to do the projects under the teacher's supervision.

Once bisque fired, pieces are returned to students, who will paint and glaze them using different finishing techniques including dipping, painting, and sgraffito. The pieces will dry for a day and then undergo a final firing. COLLECTION OF PIECES All ceramics must be collected once glaze and final fired. Parents and students will be notified via email if a piece is uncollected for three weeks. After four weeks, unclaimed pieces will be discarded.

ART: Getting Ready I

This class is for beginner students 4-6 years old. PRE-REQUISITES No prior experience is required, but the Preschool Monart class is often beneficial. CLASS STRUCTURE Each class is one hour long, and starts with a 5-minute skill exercise. Then, students are introduced to the subject, followed by the drawing and coloring component. The subject and coloring media varies each week in Monart's progressive curriculum. Students follow the progressive curriculum set by the Monart School. Topics include 2-dimensional materials, 3-dimensional objects, human form, perspective, proportion, color theory, as well as techniques in how to color using various art media. All artwork is retained by the teacher, and returned at the end of the term in a bound portfolio. BENEFITS The skill exercise at the beginning of class changes each term. It is intended to fine tune an important art skill (e.g., shading, drawing hands, pencil pressure). Students will learn to use the 5 elements of shape to decompose creatures from nature and objects from their world into simple shapes they can redraw. TIMELINE OF ADVANCEMENT Students are expected to stay in the class for a full calendar year (four consecutive semesters). Each term features brand new projects. Advancing to the next level, Getting Ready II, is based on how well the student is able to do the projects under the teacher's supervision.
