 TEEN workshops, starting in March  2022

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. Please note that those who enroll in adult art classes must provide their own art supplies. For a complete listing of all adult art classes, click HERE.

For in person classes we will require instructors and students to be vaccinated and follow current CDC guidelines for wearing masks indoors. In the interest of safety, all classes and workshops will be small groups

Students will be required to sign a Declaration of adherence to our Covid policy at their first class. Click HERE if you would like to preview the Declaration. Please email a photo or scan of your vaccination card to, subject line: Covid Vaccination Card.



Tonal Portrait Drawing– In a 3-hour session, students will explore the medium of charcoal or ink, develop an understanding of how to use different values in a drawing, then create a portrait from observation. Establishing proportion, blocking in values and composition are determined with rapid application, negotiation, and reflection. The student experience will strengthen an understanding of the media, critical discrimination, and judgement during the process of drawing from observation.
*Please bring with you a grayscale frontal photo of yourself, or the portrait that you wish to draw from.
