Teen Drawing and Painting

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. Download materials list here.
