Fine Art ( 5 – Adults)

Unit 1: Observational Drawing
Line, Shape and the elements of design

The student will begin learning how to recognize shapes by drawing a combination of still life and cartoon exercises. This also teaches instrument control and builds critical thinking. Focus: Line as an element of design, proportion as a principle of design

Unit 2: Value, Texture, and Pattern

In this unit, the student will begin to learn how light behaves by utilizing various techniques of shading using charcoal, graphite, and ink. The student will learn techniques used in realism and illustration. Focus: Value and texture as elements of design, Pattern as a principle of design

Unit 3: Color

This unit is dedicated to color theory and its application. This is done through a combination of master study and observational drawing. The student will use oil pastel and watercolor along with master study in this unit. Focus: Color as an element of design.

Fine Art (continued)

Unit 4: Anatomy

The student will learn human anatomy and study the structure and movement of the body. By utilizing the knowledge gained up to this point the student will combine that with the design elements of form and proportion. Focus: Form as an element of design and proportion as a principle of design

Unit 5: Perspective

The student will begin learning about space through the use of Perspective and deep space projection. The student will learn 1, 2, and 3 point perspective as well as an intuitive perspective. Focus: Space as an element of design and perspective as a principle of design Unit 6: Applied Aesthetics In this final unit, the student will learn how to apply all previously gained knowledge in a studio setting. The student will begin to learn how to turn theory into practice through the use of all previous media in conjunction with master study in the form of sessions focused on a specific media and master. Completion of this unit will provide the student with the necessary knowledge to pursue fine art or illustration.

Cartoons

Cartoons are typically simplified drawings used for satire, humor, and sometimes political commentary. The style of cartoon drawing can also be seen in comic strips such as Peanuts. Learning how to draw cartoons when undergoing study for sequential art provides the student with the necessary motor skills for the physical execution of the work. Concepts dealing with critical thinking, scale, shape, and form are presented early to the student.

Comics

Comics are a visual medium used to express ideas through image and text through the juxtaposed sequencing of panels. While cartooning and comics share a similar origin, they have become distinct styles of illustration. The study of comics is also a study in literature and storytelling. In a sequential art program, learning the style of comic art is important to the development of the student. It builds on the skills learned from cartooning and increases the student’s ability to communicate visually.

Sequential Art

Sequential Art, as defined by Will Eisner, is an art form in which images are deployed in a specific order for the purpose of graphic storytelling or the conveyance of information (i.e. instruction manuals). Sequential art is not tied to any one style of drawing or illustration and is commonly confused with comics. Comics are a form of sequential art, but sequential art lies solely in the telling of the story. In a sequential art program, this is the final stage of study in which the student learns literary concepts such as The Journey of the Hero, narrative, a morality tale, plot, and characterization, as well as common archetypes such as the villain, the hero, the God-man, and other types of characters. In this final installment, the student is able to combine all previous knowledge to create an original story.
