Instructor: Kosuke Kawahara
Saturday, Sunday / 45 minutes
Ages 4-6, Ages 7-9, Ages 10-12
In this class, we will cultivate how various lines and shapes can construct a wide range of images. We will start from simple drawing exercises such as filling a paper with one shape, then transitioning into building up detailed visuals. The instructor demonstrates how you can build up an image on paper; the method of this drawing class is sharing drawing processes to let kids mimic them, which leads them to final outcomes without verbal explanation.
In addition, the instructor sets up a theme for each season, freely digging into the imaginable interpretation of the visual language. For example, ocean color can be red, orange or green, the universe can be outer space as well as invisible underground. The theme only functions as a trigger to open up kids’ creativity; therefore, they are always encouraged to go beyond what the instructor shows. Each session will be a fun trip for kids!

We offer first-time students a trial class for $10 per student. New students can join in any week as every week will be structured very similarly. Weekly class topics may change depending on students’ interest. We provide open-ended and creative art projects while interacting with students. If our students prefer to do their own project, we will also support that. Just discuss with us in advance.
The instructor will customize each exercises depdinging on students' needs. Each class will have maximum 5 students. In our small classroom, students are encouraged to talk, ask questions and interact with the instructor and others. We want our students to feel connected and engaged.
