Classes are casual, friendly, and remarkable
for their success in introducing drawing tools
and developing skill in their use. We explore
color, perspective, value, composition, and art history.
Even the youngest students quickly grasp basic concepts.
Monday classes are specifically geared toward home schooled
students with a focus on curriculum and subject related
projects integrated into art lesson plans.
Teens are geared toward more involved,
intricate projects. For them, a logical approach to
perspective and proportion are essential; making
realistic drawings from photo references introduces them
to factors and scaling necessary for accurate results;
and study of color theory is, of course, a part of learning
to paint. Artistic media explored are water color, pastel,
acrylic,and colored pencils as well as graphite.
All students are encouraged to bring ideas and projects
related to school assignments. Artwork not only gives another
dimension to the learning process, it often adds a couple of
extra credit points.
