This is a course aimed at teaching the Renaissance technique of chiaroscuro for the creating the illusion of light and shadow and understanding concepts such as depth, three-dimensionality, and perspective. The correlation between creative artistic experiences and cognitive, emotional, motor, and sensory development is well established. For this reason, art, graphic activities, and workshops can be consciously followed even by younger children.
The chiaroscuro workshop teaches techniques such as lines and dot work, the use of shading, and shadows. The workshop can be followed by very young children. The dot technique, for example, is used even in preschool because it not only promotes hand-eye coordination but also helps children develop perseverance, calmness, attention, and concentration. Teaching the line technique is crucial as this is a skill that needs to be acquired by children as a prerequisite for elementary schools and learning handwriting. Even in preschool, children learn the difference between straight, curved, and broken lines. Watercolor techniques are used in preschool, along with materials like markers and pencils, to promote motor coordination. Complex representations of characters, incorporating aspects of three-dimensionality, depth, and perspective, can be acquired by children aged 9 and above, who can use the previously described techniques in a simple and appropriate manner.
