Methodology

Kindred Art students learn to perceive what they want to draw in terms of five basic elements of shape, and to develop the skills they need to translate that information onto paper.

The method¬†involves helping students “see” what they are drawing. Students will be able to look at a picture or object and understand what they are looking at and how to draw it.
