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.

Headphones welcome.

All other weeks offer students their choice from any of the projects below and includes a daily group “core learning” sketch study of still life and anatomy.

Illustrating the Imaginative Scene – Students who wish to take on a multi-step, week-long project, will learn the process of creating an illustration scene transformed from their imagination or literature concept. This includes planning and designing a storyboard sketch used to direct the final rendering of the finished artwork.  With the aid of understanding traditional art fundamentals, students will learn how to research and use the right images and/or the setting up of objects under the right lighting to create a more realistic and unified scene of people, animals or mythological creatures interacting in an imaginative environment. Illustration may be rendered in any media including paint

Rosemarie_Morelli_Students_IMG_1769IMG_1493Drawing & Painting Animals & Creatures  –
Students choose from a menagerie of animal images including pets, backyard wild, safari & zoo animals; fish & sea creatures; birds, amphibians & reptiles; winged or crawling insects.  Students will learn to understand and see how to set up the shapes for drawing the anatomy, see and layer in the values for building the 3-dimension form; then learn to detail in the textures such as fur, scales, or feathers for achieving a more realistic likeness or in capturing an expression of the animal’s characteristics. Students work in their choice of media: Oil*, Acrylic, Watercolor Paints; Pastels, Pen & Ink, Color Pencil, Conte Crayon or Charcoal. *Oil paint restricted to age 12+ or instructor’s discretion.

For students who like to draw or paint more realistically, this class focuses on how to create a better likeness of still life objects using their choice of media. Household objects, flowers, sports equipment, cloths, toys, fashion accessories, things from nature…. Students will learn to see and render a better 3-dimensional form; make metal surfaces look reflective and glass transparent; learn techniques to depict shiny and dull, textured or smooth, wood grains or stone; liquids and droplets. A Trompe L’oil scene will also be set up as a choice. Students are welcome to bring in their favorite things, toys, or musical instruments.
