The Studio's Classic Programme guarantees your child walking away with 9 masterpieces that they will create all while learning a primer about the fundamentals of art history and technique. This class is designed not only to build up one's painting repertoire and confidence, but to teach about the subjects in classical art that have brought us here as a society today.

Each week's lesson will include a history lesson, exposure to the specific era in art history through video, music and art and then the creation of a painting to take home that will represent what the student learned and will leave them with a gallery of classic art.

At the end of the course, we will have a free art show and gallery on Sunday March 29th for all the students to display what they have accomplished throughout the course.

Below are the subjects covered.

Every lesson includes all materials to create 1 art piece.

Classes scheduled 11:00am-12:30pm

Topics:

1-Prehistoric Picassos (Jan 11)

Learn about how primitive man developed the first forms of art and how they expressed themselves.

6- Medieval Magic (Feb 15)

Medieval Art was known for its depiction of life within very strict guidelines. Luxurious imagery was placed into strict guidlines- even how you drew a person had to follow rules.  Life was rarely depicted how it really was- there was very little to be shown about REAL life- but more about royals, conquests, nobility and important events.

7- Go Gothic (Feb 22)

Perhaps the most amazing feature of Gothic architecture- aside from its sheer scale and ornamentation, is the stained glass works that depicted stories.  We will explore the art of stained glass and create something very similar with materials we have on hand.

8- Renegade Renaissance (Feb 29)

The Renaissance Era was one of the most important movements in art and architecture that the world had ever scene.  A time when philosophy met change in art- you can see this in the departure from the rigidity of the Medieval and Gothic periods to the embracing of life's curves, swerves, and more in Renaissance art.  A time when the centre of the world was brought into question, and a re-birth of the beauty brought about in respecting the human form in art from Classical Greek Art and architecture,

9- Don't fix it- if it isn't Baroque! (Mar 7)

Meninas de Velazquez- Baroque is a further departure from all things classical- starting to show the reals and the feels of life as it shows that everything isn't perfect- and that art is a great way to tell stories. Stories of grandeur and light juxtaposed by dark- the world of Baroque is so interesting as it was a time for real change.  This painting by Velazquez is chosen to explore the history of the era through the story that this painting tells.

Materials: canvas and paint;
