Service Description

Instructor: Sue Hurwitz Class: Paints & Pastels Date: Mondays April 29th - May 20th Time: 5:00 - 6:00pm Age: K to 8th grade Price: $130 This class will explore creating art with acrylic paints and pastels. Week 1-Robots and Friendly Monsters-Using geometric shapes students will use their imaginations to draw and then paint robots with the use of bold colors such as orange and turquoise. Next, students will use those colors to draw and then paint (friendly) monsters. This class will be an introduction to using standard geometric forms as the foundation to build upon our subject matter Week 2-Students will start with drawing upside down, melting ice cream cones. They’ll finish the painting with a blue, textured background using paintbrushes to add texture. This class will give students a chance to work from their memories and imaginations, to depict something that is a common experience-a dropped and melting ice cream! Week 3-‘Ribbit!’- Starting a drawing with a picture as a model, students will fill playful, cartoon-style frogs with shades of green pastels. This class shows students a variety of shades of a single color to draw from. Pastels are also a great tool to learn the blending of colors. Week 4-Planets-The last subject for this series will be looking at photographs of various planets and creating colorful images of planets in space. Learning how to choose colors and blend them for a realistic depiction of the subject is the idea for this class. Sue Hurwitz is an artist who has taught classes at Art Happens, The Wild Salamander, and The Roudenbush Community Center. She does art projects at The Camp of World Cultures at the Nashua Community Music School in the summer and has been the art director for the camp.
