Young students are taught the skills of drawing and painting through observation by taking in the world around them and exploring different subject matter ranging from still-life, landscapes, architecture and the human form. Various techniques with pencil, conte, charcoal, watercolour, pen and ink, paint and pastels will be introduced.
Students will move from classical to modern techniques such as impressionism and cubism, with special emphasis on use of complimentary colours to achieve contrast, form and depth.
Starting from short studies in drawing, students will learn how to use those studies to build a painting. Some 3D techniques and projects will be introduced as well.
Today’s rapidly changing world poses a great challenge and stress for youth as they try to navigate their way through education and begin to enter the world of work. Meanwhile, parents continue to worry about future employment opportunities for their children, while trying to encourage them to choose careers that will bring them fulfilment. Experts opinions on the topic often differ in many details except one—they all seem to agree that creativity is essential. The ability to think “outside of the box” is becoming one of the most sought after skills in the job market.
At Rosetta we offer an eclectic range of visual arts courses for youths—from introductory to more advanced levels (including experimental). Our range of courses for youths are aimed at helping students develop their technical visual art skills, or further their conceptual way of thinking—thus widening an overall capacity for understanding of abstract concepts (which are often present in math or science, for example). If you are planning to enroll into an art or design-based post-secondary program, our Portfolio Foundations Program is for you.
