TEEN CLASSES

Abstract Drawing and Painting
Grades 6-12
Are you intimidated by hyper realism? Most young artists are but the reality is being able to recreate objects and people to a photographic likeness isn’t all of art.  Come explore minimalism, Neo-Expressionism, Cubism and Postmodern art styles.  Finding new ways to make marks on paper and canvas, this class will nurture that expressive side of your brain that might feel restricted or cages.  Come create, grow and be inspired in this pressure free environment. There is a one time $8 fee for a personal set of paintbrushes.

Life Drawing
Drawing from still life references, going on nature walks, learning about dimension, and being able to recreate objects in proper proportion will all be covered in this fundamental art course.  Still life drawing is the practice that develops your ability to draw items and people with realism.  You will learn techniques that will help you to draw not only from reference but from memory as well.  Learn how to break down complex forms into shapes and allow your abilities as an artist to grow.
