Ocean View School District Summer School
Each lesson is inspired by the life and work of a Focus on the Masters Documented Artist
Learning To See students get to experience a variety of materials and approaches to artwork. Sculpture is especially valuable in our world dominated by flat digital screens. It increases spacial awareness, hand-eye coordination and hands-on problem solving skills with physics.
Creating the wire action figures transfers two-dimensional line drawing experience into three-dimensions as the wire sketches out the form.
The clay animals take a different approach with pressing, pushing, poking, and pinching to breath life into a lump of clay.
Inspired by the inspiration artists, each student infuses their figures with expression, action and character.

Four week and single lessons are also available. Our lessons are cross-curricular and support the California content standards. Many of them can be tailored and grouped to work with a particular unit of study, i.e. zoology, social studies, history, language arts, sciences, etc. They are adaptable to a wide range of grade levels from elementary through secondary grades and beyond, including community groups and programs. Programs are supported in a variety of ways, including school and PTA funds, grants, or personal donations from an individual or group of parents/grandparents.
Our program is taught by professional artists who have extensive educational experience. We feel that this criterion helps to guide the student with a deeper understanding of the art making process.
