Spring 2020 Art Classes Open for Registration!

Introducing Paint-Along Art Classes for Kids

ONLY $80 A MONTH!!!

We are now opening paint-along classes on Monday and Wednesday’s from 4:30pm-6:00pm and 6:00pm-7:30pm for kids. Our professional artist will take students through a painting chosen for that month. Students will learn techniques and tricks to improve their art skills that are from Master Artist, Thomas S. Cleveland’s Art Program.
This class will use mixed-media: watercolor, color-pencil, pastel and tempra all in the same painting. Clay will also be utilized in this class to create cool clay creations that students will mold, bake and then paint their finished products!
Students may enroll at any time during the semester or month and our teachers will work with each student at their individual levels to keep them on track to finish their painting for that month.

Our paint-along art classes differ from our regular once a week art classes. Students will paint-along to a pre-chosen painting for the month.

Students enrolled in our regular once-a-week classes will have the ability to customize every aspect of their painting and have the freedom to chose their own images, mediums and paintings

Monday: 4:30 pm – 6 pm
Monday: 6 pm – 7:30 pm

Kids After School & Home School 

Ages 5 & up

Children love to draw. They use it to discover and understand the world around them. We teach children how to draw and paint what they see in a realistic way.

Why Realism? Close observation of a subject is needed to draw and paint a realistic image. By developing keen skills of perception students can visualize and express their inner images more vividly.

Customized curriculum can be tailored to fit a variety of individuals needs.

COURSE I:

Introduction to drawing and painting skills. Drawing with the grid- a classic proportion tool used by the old masters. Individual step by step demonstrations in watercolor, tempera, pastel, and color pencil- help develop student’s artistic confidence. Students complete a mixed media painting.

COURSE II:

Beginning Freehand and more developed 3-D shading, light and shadow perception. Sketching explained. Students complete a tonal drawing.

CARTOONING I:

“Character Development” Cartoons are reality distorted. Learning the proper proportions of the human figured & how to distort those proportions enable students to create an original cartoon character. With this knowledge, students aren’t limited to just copying. Using mixed media students paint a “portrait” of their unique creation.
