In charcoal, students learn about value studies, composition, proportion, etc. Pastel builds on those same concepts and introduces color exploration. Students will explore both realistic and abstract styles.

Ages 9 -12

Welcome to the world of fashion. Students will learn how to draw the fashion figure using templates then progress to free-hand proportional accurate drawing. They will have the opportunity to dress the figure in their own creations. Projects will include current classical and seasonal clothing designs and accessories.

Ages 3 - 5

Young children explore the art world in many ways throughout this course. They will be introduced to drawing, painting, sculpting, printmaking and wood crafts. Watercolors, acrylic, pastel, charcoal, ink, clay, wood and pencil are some of the mediums students will experience.

Clay is the medium brought to life in this exciting 3-D course. Both additive / subtractive methods will be taught. Sculpting techniques will be introduced as students mold animal figures and other sculptures.

Drawing and painting techniques are emphasized in this course with the goal being to improve the young artist's skills. Students will be working with a variety of mediums (charcoal, ink, pencil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic and oil paint). Still-life setups, reference pictures, photos and student's imaginations will be used to inspire their artwork.
