Service Description

Maplewood Arts was founded to provide Classical skills-based training, promote visual literacy, and to advance the understanding that great art begins with great themes expressed through mastery. Each session this summer will be centered around an artistic theme and offer students the opportunity to work alongside a professional artist, have a firsthand experience of the school’s “expression through mastery” pedagogy, and to join the studio's community. Welcome to our one-week summer workshop for teens and tweens, where they will learn the essentials of portraiture! This workshop is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the basic principles and techniques of creating a portrait. Over the course of the week, participants will learn various skills and techniques that will enable them to capture the likeness of a person, express emotions and create a sense of depth and realism in their work. Throughout the workshop, our experienced instructors will provide step-by-step guidance and feedback to help students develop their skills. The workshop will cover a range of topics, including the fundamentals of anatomy, facial features, proportions, lighting, and more. Participants will also have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of mediums, such as pencils, charcoal, pastels, and colored pencil. By the end of the workshop, students will have completed a number of original portraits, ranging from sketches to finished pieces. They will leave with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of portraiture, as well as a newfound appreciation for the power of capturing human expression and emotion. In addition to the technical skills they will learn, participants will also have the opportunity to engage with others who share their interest in art. They will be able to share ideas, learn from each other, and develop lasting friendships. We believe that every student has the potential to be an artist, and we are excited to help students discover their own unique style and artistic voice. Join us for an unforgettable week of creativity, exploration, and inspiration! * Each session will focus on a different theme, projects will not repeat, - and if taken again - will increase in complexity. For this reason students may register for more than one summer session. Artists of all levels are welcome and will be grouped by age and ability. Appropriate for ages 10 - 18.
