children’s classes


Classes are currently being updated, stay tuned!


YELLOW: (4 to 5 year olds) Students are now becoming aware of art and the act of creating.  During these years, they’ll start to build a vocabulary, work on listening skills, and develop a sense of reflection on the world around them.  In the yellow class, these young artists will continue to participate in painting, drawing, collage or sculpture techniques, ending the day with a friendly class critique of each child’s work.  This will help build their vocabulary and communication skills as well as strengthen their confidence.  A gentle introduction to art history will also be a part of the yellow class, as they begin to explore how other artists interpret the world around us.

studio kid: the secondary colors

GREEN: (5 to 6 year olds) The green class will begin the more advanced studies of color wheel studio. Students will be expected to keep an ongoing sketchbook throughout the workshop as they begin to learn how and why sketchbooks are used both in and out of the studio.  All topics from the primary classes will be reinforced to develop more critical skills and learn how to keep the creative momentum going.  These young artists will be given assignments each week which we will review together in class.

ORANGE: (6 to 8 year olds)Orange is a bit more structured than previous levels, as the students will begin to incorporate specific subject matter into their work.  At this age students have the capacity to follow instructions, have a better understanding of their feelings, and are learning to project their thoughts in an outwardly manner.   An exploration of their preferred medium will help build their skills and develop a critical artistic eye.  Students will begin to engage in creative discipline by working throughout the course on complex projects, culminating in a peer critique and gallery review at the end of the session.

studio master: the violet level

VIOLET: (8 to 12 year olds) Once your child has mastered the previous stages of the color wheel, it will be time for the advanced violet class. At this level, students are expected to keep an ongoing sketchbook, recording whatever images or thoughts they have throughout the week.  Each student will then apply their knowledge of color, line, and form to their collected experiences in order to create an expression of their daily life. Throughout the course we will hold interactive discussions about notable works of art, examining contemporary themes and styles, noting historical movements when appropriate. Arming each student with the ability to accurately describe a moment in his or her life through visual and verbal expression will instill a deep level of communicative confidence in your child.
