Human Anatomy with Sculpture & Drawing

Fridays 8:30 – 10:30 AM

In this course, students will discover the complex forms of the human body as they learn to sculpt and draw the bones and muscles. Students will spend the first semester learning to build an armature (the metal structure which holds the clay sculpture) and will sculpt the entire human skeleton. During the second semester, students will then sculpt all the muscles on top of the skeleton, learning the form and function of each muscle and its attachment points to the bones. Each class there will be a focused topic (like the skull for example), there will be a lecture presentation, Chapman will then lead the students in drawing the subject, and then sculpting the subject on their scorche sculpture. Each week there will be reading and drawing homework.

$30 materials fee for armature materials.

Students must purchase oil-based clay, a high-quality drawing sketchbook, and a few clay modeling tools. (Chapman will recommend his favorite tools to work with on the first day of class.)

Mandatory reading curriculum: Figure Drawing – Design and Invention by Michael Hampton


Drawing - Fundamentals 

Fridays 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

In this course, students will begin learning the fundamentals of drawing—focusing on values, shading, 2-D shape, 3-D form, perspective, learning to observe and create form life, and more. The course will then go into more complex aspects of drawing such as creating from imagination, composition, and story-telling. Some project subjects will include still-life, portrait, landscape, and animals.

This course is a recommended prerequisite for Oil Painting, or to be taken simultaneously with Oil Painting.



Oil Painting

Fridays 1:00 – 3:00 PM

Learn the step-by-step process of creating oil paintings that masters have used for centuries. Students will first be taught the fundamentals of oil painting and also dive into learning the basics of color theory, perspective, composition, value, and the variety of brush strokes. Throughout the year, students will learn from Old Master artworks, draw and paint from still lifes, study trees in nature, work on personal projects, and more. This is a really informative and fun art class for beginners and advanced artists alike.

Note: easel, and brush cleaner will be provided in class. The rest of the art supplies must be purchased by the student. A materials list will be handed out on the first class. 




The Registration Fee holds your spot until August 15, 2020, when you must begin monthly payments or provide a purchase order from your charter school. Your registration fee can not be paid by instructional funds from your charter and is not refundable. If you do not register and pay the registration fee, you may be surprised to find that the class is sold out, and the teacher is not prepared for your student. A purchase order is not enough to consider yourself registered. The purchase order from your charter does not give us any contact information for you, tell us specifically which class you desire, or include the signed Terms and Conditions document.

The fee also causes potential students to consider which courses they need carefully, prevents spots from being held unnecessarily, and gives the teacher accurate information from which to plan their classes. The registration fee is not deductible from the tuition.

DROP POLICY: Drops are accepted until September 31, 2020. After classes have begun, you may only drop the course if you have withdrawn from homeschooling or moved out of the area. You are responsible for your student’s balance for the semester, whether or not your student attends. The course will be prorated for late enrollees.


Our system does NOT hold your spot until payment is received.
