ADULT AND TEEN PAINTING CLASSES
Teen and adult painting classes allow students to focus on one, specific painting-related medium (acyclic, oil or watercolor). This freedom and flexibility ensures students continue to develop advanced skills and techniques, while pursuing other painting-related art forms.
One of our most popular classes. Students learn how to master the techniques and mediums required to create an oil painting. Some of the areas explored include impasto, wipe-out or reduction, full color blending and working with a black canvas. A great class for teens and adults, students will also learn composition drawing and color theory.
Students, interested in taking a different type of painting, should consider watercolors. Students will receive instruction in material use, controlling paints and brushes, and working with wet and dry brushes. Other skills will include the use of special effects and preparing surfaces. This allows students to receive a well-rounded exploration of the medium. Great watercolor artists and their works will also be explored, helping students gain recognized artists’ knowledge and create a style that best suits their artistic inspirations and aspirations.
Our ceramics programs are new to our studio. We offer classes for all ages and skill levels. Students create their own pieces from start to finish. We do not just offer glaze a pre-made piece; we encourage students to create everything involved. Because our classes are small, we offer hands on instruction.
