Creatrix Kids Art Classes – Eugene Oregon- Caticorn

Working with shapes!

Creating our ‘Caticorn’.

We continued the spirit of fun and imagination by creating Caticorn. The purpose of this exercise was to continue working with shapes to develop our creature.

You can see the fun results below.

Melia’s work

It is exciting to watch Melia become more patient with placing her shapes and lines on the paper. She is taking time to observe and recreating the steps I show on creating our little Caticorn.

This was the first time we used acrylics in class. We are working towards understanding how to rough out shapes to create our drawing then applying color. Melia tends to have more of an impasto style which will be a fantastic texture for her bold style of art.

Before jumping into creating Caticorn we did a fun exercise in abstract art. This exercise was used to show the kids other techniques in laying down pastels on paper to create a certain texture. Love how Melia just dives into it. She always has her warrior art face by the end of class.

Devin’s work

It is exciting being able to show Devin how to use acrylics to quickly block in color references on his drawings.

This was the first time we used acrylics in class. We are working towards understanding how to rough out shapes to create our drawing then applying color. Devin is already fantastic at observing and following directions. I decided that this would be a good time to introduce him to the different style of brushes and how to apply them on paper with acrylics. This will help with out upcoming assignment.

Devin was patient with his application which create an amazing transition of pastels on paper. His choice of color was well balanced. Beautiful piece.

Genevieve’s work

Genevieve has a very distinct path when it comes to creating art. She knows exactly what she wants to do and goes for it.
