Adult Art Classes

The adult art program focuses on establishing the fundamentals of drawing and painting in a steady and systematic fashion. There are a series of 7 projects each new student will complete. Each project teaches a specific lesson and each builds on the last. After completing the 7 projects, the student will have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of drawing and color theory. Establishing the toolbox of skills is important because you can use them to begin your independent part of the program. You will pick the subject and medium and I will simply reinforce the lessons learned to ensure your best work.

High School Student Art Classes

As children grow into young ladies and gentlemen, it is important that they are given the tools and vocabulary to explore, question and create art. With a strong concentration on the fundamentals of drawing in the realistic manner, these classes build skills and medium exploration in all forms of 2 dimensional works.
