Your teens will explore various drawing and painting styles while learning techniques to build on and improve their skills. Design elements and principles are implemented with excercies each class and interwoven into main projects.

Students are instructed by a professional artist and art teacher of 30 years. Students will learn how to use different tools and techniques in their work, while building on their portfolio.

Students generally focus on one style, medium or technique or experiment with mixed media. Methods and technqiues are taught daily your teens engage in the process. Art techniques stretch across all medias, watercolor, ink, colored pencil and pastel.

Themes are suggested or emergent based, determined by discussions, inspiration and individual interests. Students will be taught how to work independantly with guidance, suggestions and group critiques. Personal expression and freedom to explore is valued and promoted. Class is ongoing, students can register anytime and for as long as they wish. I encourage all of you to buy sketchbooks and basic drawing tools for your kids so they can draw outside of class as much as possible.
