Art 1 (Arts not Crafts)

This is a real studio class for young artists. No glitter and Popsicle sticks. ;-)

Mark making, composition and design will be emphasized in this hands on studio class. Materials and techniques covered in this course include, but are not limited to: drawing, painting, mixed media, perspective, guidelines of composition, life drawing, abstract art and contemporary art.

*Parent/Caregiver is required to stay for the entire duration of the class if the student is in PreK or Kindergarten (Optional for 1st grade participants). Participation of parent/caregiver is not expected or required, but it is always welcomed.


Art 2 (Emerging Artists studio)

Grades: 2nd - 4th 

Instructed by: Kevin Shifley

This class is for young artists who are interested in developing their skills in drawing and painting. The focus of this course is to introduce students to how light impacts our work and how it helps us create depth in our work. Students will learn various techniques for creating light and dark values to produce three dimensional forms. Get excited because this class will change the way your student sees and produces art. 


Art 3 (Art Studio Advanced)

Grades: 5th-8th

Instructed by: Kevin Shifley

Students in Art Studio Advanced may have different experience levels and so this course will be tailored to fit each student. Projects are designed to be challenging, yet low risk opportunities to explore a number of different art mediums and styles. Projects include but are not limited to, life drawing, mixed media and painting. Students will develop their self confidence and creative problem solving in this unique studio experience. 
**9th-12th grade students are also welcome until our Art 4 class is added.
