Children and Teens enjoy learning how to become better artists At Rosemarie Morelli Art Studio School. Summer Art Workshop Weeks offer students both group and individual instruction in Drawing, Painting and Illustration. The relaxed-structured classes allow students to work on their main project of their choosing at their own speed. Individual instruction is provided to guide each student’s level of ability to a better understanding of art. Each day includes a fun, short group activity designed to inspire and focus; teach a “how to…” art technique; and build the fundamental skills necessary to improve their drawing and painting while exploring the elements of landscapes, seascapes, still life objects, portrait, anatomy, animals and fantasy characters. Students create artworks in their choice of media: oil, acrylic and watercolor paints; pastels; pen & ink; color pencil; charcoal; conte crayons; graphite; and 3D multi-media materials including plaster, modeling clay, papers, fabrics, and textiles.
