School Year Classes

Mastering Art

Ages: 9+
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

This fine arts class is intended for students who have intermediate drawing skills and are looking to learn more sophisticated artistic techniques. Students in the Mastering Art class are ready to advance their skills to create more three-dimensionality and realism in their work. Projects include animals, nature, still life, cartoons, human form, various master artists and landscapes. Emphasis is placed on shading, perspective, composition and developing finished pieces. Students will be encouraged to develop their own style and creative approach.

Students begin taking more risks and venture on their own as they learn to master techniques and media. They will gain confidence and self-esteem in their drawing abilities and in themselves. Guidance is provided on an "as needed" basis, as we lead students through the decision-making process involved in creating art. To honor and celebrate each child's learning, students are invited to participate in our Spring Art Walk.

“I believe your classes made my daughter more self confident about her drawing at school. It has made her feel good about herself.”
- Carmen, Parent
