PRE-TEEN DRAWING & CHARCOAL ACADEMY
4:00 - 6:30pm
This is an ongoing class. Apply anytime.
ABOUT THE CLASS
For younger artists, it’s important for the artistic process to be fun and engaging. In this 2.5 hour class, students will learn the basics of drawing from photo references, still-life objects, and more!
With a focus on fine art drawing skills, students will use both graphite and charcoal mediums to create finished art pieces. Through lessons on artistic observation and creativity, students will train their artistic eye to see the world as an artist sees it, a world filled with beauty and potential.
Class is broken down into segments such as warm-up exercises, class lesson, individual projects, critiques, break and collaborative work.
Every student will pass off goals to achieve carefully designed artistic milestones through out the program.
PLEASE NOTE: The Academy program is by invitation only. Students must submit an application and come to the studio for an interview before receiving an invitation to join the program. Learn more about The Academy program by clicking "The Academy" in the menu above.

Yes. There is an enrollment fee of $40 per student that will be automatically charged (1) at the time a new student enrolls and (2) every September thereafter.
The enrollment fee covers the costs of receiving a brand new studio t-shirt each September. It also covers the costs of classroom expenses and special studio events like open houses, art shows and contests.

Tuition is paid through an automatic withdrawal on the 25th of every month. This automatic process is set up at the time of enrollment.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A CLASS?
