Fundamentals: Art foundations
Mr Christie shares our belief that we learn by doing and that often the "right" answer does not exist. Every student is encouraged to find a deeper understanding and appreciation for the tools, materials and methods. The first lesson is an eye opening introduction to line, form, and dimension.
We end the first class with the "art of math" and show learners how all the fun we just had in art, applies to math.
