Join instructor, Genelle Contreras for our next installment of KIDS@CAM. Drawing with Confidence will build your child’s drawing skills and get them excited about trying some different approaches to drawing. Each of the four classes will have children using different kinds of mark making to build up their drawing from blind contour to a sustained gesture sketch of a live quail

Per class fee is $50 CAM members/$65 non members.  All materials will be provided.

  • July 19–Drawing Profiles: Kids will learn to use a techniques of repeating directional arrow shapes to create a profile. The will practice this technique by drawing each other’s profiles gradually moving on to a more accurate representation.
  • July 26—Continuous Line Drawing: Building on their knowledge of capturing facial features from the previous lesson, kids will build eye/hand coordination by drawing self-portraits. Kids will do a continuous line drawing of themselves and then take it one step further by exploring how to create a self-portrait using a few lines as possible
  • August 2Drawing the Impossible: Drawing an impossible triangle will have kids using the tones of pastel to create the illusion of depth and perspective.
  • August 9—Drawing by Approximation: Kids will draw large gestural sketches of a live quail. Having a moving subject will encourage kinetic mark making and a disregard for small details.

Cost for for all 4 sessions is $50 CAM members/$65 non members. Class size: min. 4/max. 10. For online registration visit or contact the Art Education Dept. at (541) 267-3901.
