Art Classes for Homeschoolers

We are thrilled to offer art classes to homeschool students.  Theory and technique are well balanced with demonstration and practice allowing students (ages 7 and older) to create finished works of art as displayed in the samples.  Class size is limited  to 10 students with 1 teacher and 1 assistant which allows for ample individual instruction.  A variety of  projects are offered to match the student's age and level.  Family discount offered.

By using a proven step-by-step system, students create drawings in a variety of styles from realistic to abstract. The progression of lessons guide students to developing independent drawing skills while nurturing personal expression and creativity. Class projects are richly balanced with inspirations gathered from a wide range of sources.  Our art school provides a safe environment where young artists can feel comfortable taking chances in their work and exploring new ideas and media. The skills acquired through drawing will improve many other important life and academic skills such as creativity, confidence, problem-solving skills, perseverance, focus, non-verbal communication, resiliency, collaboration skills, dedication and accountability.
