What's Included

Beyond the Basics picks up where the Basics of Drawing leaves off. Come and refine your drawing skills with fun and challenging art projects. Each art piece will be an independent project that will incorporate foundational drawing skills previously learned with lots of room for creative expression. Students learn to take risks and try new ideas like drawing with the nondonminant hand (ex. Mickey Mouse). Projects range from tonal drawings, abstract drawings to nonrepresentational expanded drawing. We will be explore a variety of media ... everything from charcoal to dried flowers. Pre-requisite: Intermediate level is for those who have a good understanding of the basics and terminology. Most students have previously attended at least one summer art camp or have taken at least one year of regular weekly classes. In some cases this is not necessary; please call to enquire.

About This Organizer

Aliki's (Ah-LEE-kees) is a place and space where arat begins.  

We believe that ANYONE can learn how to draw and that drawing is a teachable skill just like any other.  The process of learning to draw opens up endless possibilities and easily helps students branch off into other visual art forms.  Artists who paint and sculpt, do so better when they know how to draw.

Convinced that drawing was in fact a “teachable” subject and that a structured method could be established in much the same way as had been done in music and writing, Aliki created what is now known as Aliki’s 7-Step System.  Using a revolutionary instructional drawing method, and sound teaching techniques, Aliki's has encouraged hundreds of artists from beginners to professionals of all ages. Our focus is to teach practical skills that encourage all artists to use drawing as a way of life.
