All about art studio
Children are born with creative mind which can positively impact their lives at all aspects, we believe the ways of encouraging their artistic expression are very important at their early years. At All about Art Studio, we offer a fun, imaginative atmosphere for our young artists to learn, explore, and create their very own piece of work. Therefore, their imagination will not only be used, but also be bent, extended and stretched.
On each project, our students may warm up with a storytelling, an imaginative trip, or even a scary dream, from there, we lead them all the way to the endless possibilities of art!
Students can expect to work with variety of media, including but not limited to colored pencil, paint, clay, wire, and create both abstract and representational work. Drawing and painting techniques will be slowly introduced when needed.
At All about Art Studio, you tell, we listen; you draw, we watch; you go crazy, we lead you to more crazy.
Let the brush speak—Chinese Painting and Calligraphy (5yrs and up)
Chinese painting and calligraphy were traditionally considered one and the same, the brush strokes not only describe the essence of a subject and also capture its rhythm and grace, depict its outward and inner qualities.
Our class will start with brief history, basic techniques, elements, principles, understanding the cultural significance, and will be gradually introduced to new skill development, broader topic discussion, contemporary theme experiment, self expression, integration of traditional and modern elements. Both representational and abstract work will be created.
A brush, can really speak, of course with your mind!
