as we are taught how to combine basic phonetic rules to read,
musical notes to play an instrument, and dance steps to dance,
our program teaches the individual to draw using the Basic Elements
of Shape. Once students recognize these elements, they are
guided as to how they might combine them on paper so that their
drawings represent what they see. Each week students works
on projects designed to teach the Elements of Shape and to create
a unique and fully-developed composition.
