Designed for advanced teen students who have already completed beginner art classes and/or show keen promise in art, this class will offer students the opportunity to work on personal subject matter through the medium of drawing and painting.

The course will begin with preliminary drawing exercises to brush up on skills and prepare for more elaborate painting compositions & interests. Students will explore a wide vocabulary of artistic genre before working on paintings. They will learn how to evoke mood, atmosphere, light & emotion in composition to create pieces with a more unique look. Students are free to choose to work in realism or abstract painting if they prefer. In a full class course, students will work toward creating several finished paintings. The course will end with a critique on each student’s work.

This class is ideal for anyone planning to apply to an art program and pursue a career in the visual arts. Returning students are welcome and encouraged to practice their craft.
