    Adult, Teen & Youth Art Classes

    Currently, we conduct in-person art classes for representational drawing and painting.

    We do not separate students according to medium, skill level or technique, this allows us to combine various interests and skill levels into a cohesive small group learning environment.

    Our ongoing weekly class schedule is organized into 3 age groups:

    Adult (18yr+), Teen (12-17yr) & Youth (8-11yr).

    Our art program does not intermix students of different age groups, also we cannot accommodate students under the age of 8.

    Once proficient, students may focus on a new medium within the same weekly class. Learn More

    We assist with building skillsets by introducing various techniques and concepts. View Classes

    Students choose each subject of their artwork by selecting a visual reference.  Read More
