Parents and Students: please submit your 3 works of art to me by May 14 for our show. All artwork must be matted, framed or sturdy enough to stand up on an easel with the child's name and age on the back. We will also have projects on display that we have been working on for the past few months.

The Creative Arts Studio

Children's Art Classes 2010

May through August

Students will discover the visual arts through basic art principles such as line, shape, color, and texture. Children will develop their motor skills by drawing, cutting, glueing, painting, printing, sculpture and more. Famous artists and cultures are also introduced to the children to give them an early exposure to the arts from history and cultures around the world. An introduction to all kinds of mediums such as acrylics, watercolors, tempera, charcoal, inks, oil and chalk pastels give the children an opportunity to be creative in ways that they might not otherwise be exposed to. Come have fun with us while we explore the many creative avenues of art.

The teen class is project based in order to learn drawing, and painting skills and techniques. Some of the mediums we work in are oils, acrylics, watercolor, prismacolor pencil, and inks. This year we have been learning beginning watercolor techniques for still life, and landscapes. We have also been learning how to draw figures in action (for extreme sports) and applying india ink effects. This spring and summer we will be painting landscapes and seascapes in oils.

All class sizes are limited to 6-8 students. Private individual lessons and Parent/child or Grandparent/child lessons are also available. Lessons are ongoing throughout the year and taken month to month.

Please contact me to enroll.
