Beginning Level 1: Students develop drawing skills and hone their creativity while learning basic color theory and exploring different mediums including acrylic, watercolor, pastels, markers, and colored pencils. Subject matter includes animals, still life, art history, the human form, and more.
Beginning Level 2: This more challenging class is geared toward children with longer attention spans. Students use more detail and learn color theory and basic shading using acrylic, watercolor, pastels, and colored pencils. There are new projects each semester, so new and returning students will be creatively challenged.
Intermediate Level 3: Students complete step by step art projects, learn about new techniques such as speed painting and become better acquainted with the use and care of brushes, supplies, and equipment.
Students will start to build their portfolios while work in a shared studio space and growing creatively with others. They design and create pieces to submit to local juried shows and use prospectus criteria as inspiration.
This culturally diverse group is a place for middle and high-school age students to work together to create art for our community. Students commit to empowering themselves and others with the arts and develop and practice leadership skills. They learn about how nonprofits work with the strong need for fundraising and engage in creative action to create art pieces, decorations, and props for fundraising purposes.
