Multimedia Art Classes
Does your child enjoy adding a little of this and a little of that? Straying from the instructions?
Multi-media is an excellent art form for nurturing this type of creativity. Projects will begin with some basic instruction to build upon using varied supplies and imagination! This varied and flexible art form provides children the opportunity to really immerse in their creativity with minimal focus on technical skills. Some examples include blended alcohol and ink art, paint pouring with image overlay, sponge paint back drops with whimsical creatures, 3-D collages, found objects sculpture building, Pastel and wax art, dried flowers with water colors and so much more.

Art & Skills Classes
Designed for slightly older students, these classes focus on obtained skills being practiced in class. Students are taught about different tools, supplies, lighting and techniques as well as using perspective to their advantage when sketching or painting a subject. Specific classes may introduce vanishing points and scale concepts especially when drawing landscapes or buildings. As with any skill, they take time and practice to master. Art & Skills classes often focus on a specific practice such as sketching, portraiture, painting landscapes, painting animals or guided acrylic paintings.
