School Year Classes

Adult Beginners

Ages: 16+
Duration: 2 hours
The Adult Beginners class is intended for adult students at beginning and intermediate levels of drawing skill and confidence. It's a completely safe, relaxing, non-judgmental environment where students are taught how to use the elements of art to create realistic drawings. As students become familiar with basic drawing skills, new mediums like pencil, watercolor, charcoal and acrylic paint are introduced and students are encouraged to experiment with the techniques and visual effects that each medium allows.

“I learned how to shade with pencil and now I use that technique all the time.”
- Isis, Age 8
