School Year Classes

Art Confidence

Ages: 7-9
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Let's build artistic confidence! This class is geared towards the older beginner and has the same guided structure as our Discover Drawing class. Students learn fundamental drawing and painting concepts as they build confidence in their skills and their ability to make their own artistic decisions. Media exploration will increase in this class, as students experiment with markers, chalk and oil pastel, water color and acrylic paint, and colored pencils.

Parents choose Thrive for their children's art education for a variety of reasons. By the age of 7, many children realize their desire to have their drawings look a certain way and are not sure how to create it on paper. Thrive Art School's nurturing environment lets you support your child's love of drawing by providing a place for encouragement and artistic inspiration. Other children enroll in Thrive classes because they love to draw and know that our school is a place where they can build skills in a peaceful and supportive environment. Children at Thrive are encouraged to make their own creative decisions with the confidence they are gain weekly in classes. To honor and celebrate each child's learning, students are invited to participate in our Spring Art Walk.


“I loved all the drawing projects. Your teachers are terrific. Just the right amount of coaching with a sense of comfort. I’ve left class every time with life in my spirit - Thanks to you!”
- Margaret, Adult
