Children's Classes

Art Classes for Young People

Afternoon classes for children and teens, offered in the Fall and Winter/Spring, provide a unique opportunity to study art in a real studio environment with faculty who are working artists as well as teachers. A highly individualized program provides instructions in drawing, painting, sculpture, and mono-printing as well as multi-media techniques.
Classes are small, and projects which students develop individually with teachers may be pursued over several weeks, encouraging an in-depth approach and intensity of experience. Young artists are encouraged to express their real and imaginary worlds in a climate where trust, self-confidence, and acceptance may grow. A balance is sought between preserving the child's natural creativity and providing the skills and discipline necessary for deeper expression to unfold.
