Kids & Teens Classes


Combo Art: Students will work on 3-D & 2-D art projects. Clay is instructed one week, then drawing and painting the next. It’s a great way to learn many creative methods using different art mediums and materials.  This class focuses on encouraging self-expression, and is suitable for kids ages 5-12.

Sketch: This course introduces the elements and principles of art to improve drawing skills while encouraging individual creativity. The instructor will guide the class through different black-and-white drawing techniques, building confidence and independence as each student learns how to start and successfully finish their own works of art. The students can then expand on the instructor's teachings, creating more unique pieces that are completely original.

Teens Sketch: This well-balanced class is designed to introduce students to all formal elements and principles of art while encouraging individual creativity. Each month, the instructor will hold a step-by-step tutorial to demonstrate the selected technique of the month. The students will then be allowed to expand on the instructor's teachings, creating a more unique piece that is completely original.

Sketch for OCSA Portfolio Preparation:    This is the most serious Drawing & Sketching class. Designed to prepare students who are applying to art schools, this class operates like a "boot camp" that starts with the basic drawing fundamentals and finishes with advanced techniques over the course of a semester. It is also individualized to a degree in order to focus on each student's application and goals.

Clay /Sculpting:  Explore the possibilities of clay! Build a basic understanding of clay and hand-building techniques, like coiling, pinching and slab building. Learn how to apply glazes, under-glazes, and acrylic paints to complete your artwork.

Drawing/Painting: For anyone who loves to draw and paint, or wants to learn. Study color theory, composition, color mixing, and more by painting different subjects and improving basic drawing skills. Every month, we will approach a different art form .
