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. We offer morning art camp for the summer and for February and April vacation.

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.
