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*.

Outdoor Landscape Painting Workshop For Teens: “En Plein Air” Ages 14-18
This is a 5-day workshop where students will learn all the stages of painting an oil landscape scene in nature’s light at 2 locales in Walpole. “En Plein Air” is French for “in the open air.”  If rain, we will have class back at the outdoor studio tent relevant to landscape painting.

Illustrating the Imaginative Scene – Students 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

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.
