Drawing, Painting, and Self Expression for teens that love art, and serious teens interested in building a portfolio. The class is specifically designed to accommodate teens that are looking for a category that meets their needs (too old to be with a younger group and too young to be with adults). We will explore the fundamentals of art and learn basic techniques to learn how to draw. Teens will be encouraged to tap into their creativity and express their imagination freely. We will explore subject matter, such as realism, abstraction, expressionism; we will learn about art history's influence on today's modern artists. Each student will be led based on their own personal interests, needs at their level.

About the Instructor
Maurice Casas’ art is a result of several years of experimentation and a search for identity. It is the fusion of these two disciplines plus his personal sensitivity that have given him a new vision for color and design. His work creates an environment of invented realms and is juxtaposed between past and present. He uses semi-abstract and figurative mark-making to create tension between reality and fanciful. Using Pre-Columbian Art and Iconography and elements of Architecture, Maurice has developed a unique and colorful language with its own vocabulary. Originally from Colombia in South America, Maurice has attended Colegio Antonio Narino and New York City Technical College. He has lived in the United States for 35 years where he has worked as a Visual Artist and Architectural Designer.
