Method & Foundational SkillsThe foundation of Brown-Wing’s offerings are based upon observation and the development of artistic skills that encourage each individual student to think, feel, and express their creative visions. Kate teaches the principles of ‘academic’ drawing from observation, combined with her own methodical observational and drawing skills acquired while working as a scientific illustrator for world renowned scientists… and synthesizes the process into a fun, methodical process for all ages starting at 6years old.
ProcessAs a result, Kate provides unique sequence of instructions, designed to take the mystery and self-doubt out of the typically frustrating experience of drawing and turns it into education that provides empowering personal experiences and develops artistic skills. Once acquired, these foundational skills apply to many aspects of creative expressions and mediums.
The ResultsAs a result, Brown-Wing’s unique sequence of instructions, take the mystery and self-doubt out of the typically frustrating experience of drawing and turns it into an education that provides empowering personal experiences and develops artistic skills. Students gain confidence in their ability to communicate visually. Working though any frustrations with results with greater tenacity, knowing that the solution is there, as long as they are clear about the vision.
No cookie cuttersThis is no pre-fab, cookie-cutout crafty fluff! It’s an opportunity to develop visual skills for communicating, describing and expressing oneself… with confidence. The skills do take practice and a commitment to learn, but once discovered, are powerful tools for students to apply to all educational experiences. Kate believes that creative expression is ‘core’ personal birthright. And that the skills to express oneself are available to everyone that can write the alphabet, it’s just a matter of instruction, practice and purpose.
“Kate Brown-Wing has opened a door for me for which I never would have opened myself. I feel so lucky that I answered her Ad to ”DRAWING: The Horse.” Not only did I learn to draw horses, but with the instructions and the confidence she instilled in me, I am now drawing many other objects including the human figure.
I’m 67 years old and have never drawn a picture in my life; and now I can’t wait to sit down and draw.” Nancy Anderson, Warrenton, Virginia
“Kate is an accomplished artist and scientific illustrator who teaches at the museum, and has lead several family programs for us. (I can attest that she was incredible in Costa Rica last year, getting me to pick up the paint brush and create some ‘okay’ paintings!).”
Philip Lovejoy, Director of the Harvard Museum of Natural History Program, 11/99
“Hiring Kate was one of the best decisions I made while Program Director of Round Hill Arts Center. She has a passion for teaching and a patience with her students that together form a welcome, comfortable environment for artistic creativity. As a result, her students grew as artists and thanked her with glowing evaluations.”
