The Art Making Process


In the art making process students receive guided instruction on how to start and finish a typical art project using efficiency and best practices. 

Phase One begins with sketching, grid-lining, drawing, or filling in under-paintings.  In this phase, students learn about introductory best practices on techniques and approaches, and understanding the art concepts. 

Phase Two includes adding multiple layers of tone, color, or paint within an artwork.  Here, students are required to problem solve and are encouraged in their art to explore, manipulate, and master technique based art applications.
