I believe the key here is to engage the children in learning the fundamentals of art through fun and successful projects. When I teach children in all age ranges, I will be planting the seeds of the fundamentals of art in ways they can understand and implement with confidence. Such as, how to create an animal using your 5 basic shapes. What is the texture of a dolphins skin and how would we show that, how do we show the texture of bark on a 
Palm tree and where does the sunlight fall on it, how light casts a shadow, 
how to shade from light to dark (Value & Shading), the use of color and color blending
 and understanding how perspective works and so much more!!!

We will build abilities and confidence with each project.  
Advancing understanding of specific techniques as it pertains to the various mediums we will be using , i.e. watercolors, watercolor pencils, oil pastels, 
soft pastels, acrylics, pencil & charcoal.

Most importantly, the students have discovered within themselves a newfound confidence and fearlessness that comes from being equipped with evolving knowledge, techniques and abilities.  This confidence will enhance
 their creativity in their artwork and these wonderful attributes can then be expanded 
into other parts of their lives as well!
