YAP ART LAB is a hands-on art-making class for home-school, public, and private school students.
In this fun and innovative class students will explore a variety of mediums such as drawing, painting, collage, pottery, and 3-d design. Each project is developed to strengthen arts-based, inquiry-based, decision-making, autonomy, motor skills, and build the foundation skills. Lessons may also include yoga and fun games!
This class is a great introduction to art for new students, as well as an opportunity for students to continue building skills from previous sessions.
In this intro to drawing class students will learn to express their creativity using simple line drawings. Techniques such as foreshortening, overlapping, size, and surface will be taught to help stimulate and develop their independent skills. Students will be able to work independently and as part of a group in this class.
This class is designed for students who have a strong interest in learning the fundamentals of drawing. The instructor may give the students exercises to practice at home in between classes.
