Children’s Art Classes

Children’s Art ClassesYoung children love to create art and only a few children learn to draw realistically on their own. It is like playing the piano, learning to write stories, learning a foreign language or taking ballet dance classes. Children need to be taught at a young age about the basics before they can become creatively independent. If children are taught realistic drawing from a young age they will quickly graduate to sophisticated and skilled drawings and most will continue to draw for the rest of their lives and apply their focus and skills to other artistic endeavors…

We offer an advanced class for students who are ready for more studio art exploration! This class is intended for teens and high school students with basic drawing skills, and also for those who are interested in preparing for a higher level of art. Students gain the confidence to create portfolios for the 2-D Design, 3-D Design or Drawing sections of the college-level class. Teachers will introduce a variety of media, including graphite, charcoal, color pencil, pastels, acrylic and watercolor. Perspective, Human Form, Portraiture, Animals, Still Life, Nature Studies, cartooning and Master Artists are just some of the projects offered.

In this supportive class, we emphasize building confidence and encouraging self-expression. We support independent study but offer plenty of guidance if the student would like it. Students can take their skills in shading and perspective to the next level. To honor and celebrate each child’s learning, students are invited to participate in our art shows.

Make our excellent art program a part of your home school curriculum. We provide students with academic content that compliments the theme of each drawing and painting lesson to bring out the inner artist. We cover many subjects throughout the year while exploring art concepts such as lighting, shading, colors, composition, perspective,design, value and more. Home School projects include: learning about famous artists, human culture, environmental studies, animals, nature and far-away places!

Students who draw what they’re learning about retain new knowledge for longer periods of time and are quick learners. There is no critique or competition so students can openly explore art in a safe environment. To honor and celebrate each child’s learning, students are invited to participate in our annual Spring show.
