 online art workshop for teens 13-18 years old

teacher: Cody Blocker
This course is dedicated to various aspects of painting with the most popular painting media: acrylics or oils (students can choose), plus an intro on watercolor. By the end of this camp students will learn to asses the desired color by mixing, correctly represent lighting, texture and proportions of objects, strengthen their knowledge of color theory and human anatomy, and move their painting skills to the next level.

It will be held ONLINE via ZOOM video conference. Students will need access to a computer / tablet / phone with internet connection and After the lecture and demonstrations teachers regularly check and correct the digital image of a student's work, explain what works in particular cases and what does not, and why.
