General Open Enrollment Classes
Draw what you see (1-3)(2-4)(4-6)(6-8)
Identifying a strong composition, judging size relationships, drawing from life and from photographic references are skills that artists are continuously working on. The goal of this class is to develop hand eye coordination and learn to really look at what we are drawing. Materials will include pastels, color pencils, markers, and graphite.
Fantastic Figures (4-6)(6-8)
Anime, Superheroes and Comic Books all have one thing in common. People! Though in these formats they are usually whimsical in nature and highly stylized. In this class we will be learning to draw figures and portraits with a focus on age-appropriate human antinomy, proportion, and form.
Kooky Cartooning (K-2) & (3-5)
The characters we love are often not people but anthropomorphized objects, animals, and creatures. Our TV screens are filled with talking cars, chipmunks, and sponges. In this drawing class we will be working with media such as graphite, crayons, and markers to develop a character and bring it to life. This class is great for younger artist exploring facial expressions, character development and storytelling.
Advanced Art Open Enrollment Classes
Canvas Kids (3-5)(4-6)(6-8)
In this class we will be exploring acrylic paint techniques and mediums. Some of the best qualities of acrylic paint are its ability to create texture, as well as its rich velvety color that can be applied in layers. We will focus on techniques such as scumbling, impasto, blocking-in, underpaintings and so much more! Students will be creating art you will be excited to frame and hang on your wall.
Clay Creations (1-3) (3-5) (4-6)
Working with air dry clay helps young artists with special references, fine motor skills and is an outstanding sensory development activity. We will be using hand building techniques to create unique works of art each week including coil pots, boxes, candle holders, and monsters!
Marvelous and Messy: Mixed Media (4-6)(6-8)
In this exploratory art class we will be focusing on intentional decision making and the overall emotive quality of our marvelous and messy mixed media creations. Knowing which materials to use and why is imperative to being a successful artist and getting your ideas and messages across. In this class we will learn to combine a surprising variation media effectively, such as magazines for collage, paint, pastel, yarn, salt and sand.
In this advanced class each month we will create a new masterpiece hyper-focused on specific topics, techniques, and methods. The entire month will be dedicated to learning the media and techniques to create a work of art with that medium. Upcoming monthly projects include Geodes: Texture and Acrylic Paint Techniques, Landscape: Exploring watercolor, Photo Realistic Portraits: A Graphite and Charcoal Intensive.
