The following classes are specifically designed for pre-teens and teens. For more advanced students, we have adult art classes that may appeal to teens inclined toward the arts.

Draw It (ages 11 – 15) is all about learning to draw what you see, whether it’s a realistic rendering or cartooning where you exaggerate to create an effect. We will work on portraits, still lives, and design using proportion, perspective, and line quality to produce strong drawings. Starting with pencil and paper, students will have the option of experimenting with other media such as colored pencils and marker pens.
