Youth & Teen Art Studios

Youth Art Studios are a wonderful opportunity for young artists to get direct instruction from one of our Artist Instructors. Classes will be offered in a variety of media for ages 8-18 and will be 4 to 8 sessions long.

Each class will offer an instruction to technique, ideas, creativity, and exploration. Students will be required to work on projects throughout the week as they delve into art topics and new ways of making.

Just as our in-person classes are kept small, our virtual classroom will also be limited to a max of 10 students in order to guarantee one on one instruction and the ability for Artist. Instructors to get to know students and their work.

In-person classes will provide all necessary supplies and materials for students who are registered for a course.

This class will be all about color and exploring water mixable oil paint. Water mixable oils are just like oil paint, but they dissolve in water, so eliminate the need for abrasive chemicals.
