Art Lessons For Children
We teach young artists a step-by-step approach to the fundamentals of drawing and painting. They begin by learning important drawing concepts such as line, value, form and composition. After learning some color theory, students nove on to paint still-lifes, landscapes and portraits. We teach them classical skills and allow them room to be creative.

Art Classes For Adults - Part Time
We offer a wide range of part-time study options for adult students. Throughout the week, we offer classes in Portraiture • Figure Drawing and Painting • Oil painting •Watercolor • Pen and Ink • Pastel and many others. But we recommend all students begin with our Foundations Program, which is taught on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with both daytime and evening sections. In that program, students learn the very basics of how to draw and paint in a traditional, academic manner. After establishing a foundation, students can then move into areas of greater specificity, such as still life, portrait or figure drawing and painting.
