Summer workshops are designed for children ages 5 and above and the goal is to introduce and develop a basic understanding of art in a fun environment using different techniques and types of mediums, such as pencil, oil pastel, watercolor and acrylic. They can experience the magic of colors, pencil shading and learn how to create beautiful paintings and sketches with ease. Our focus is to keep them engaged, productive and learning whether they come in-person or join online from the comfort of home. Students will learn tips and techniques of creating art in a fun and interactive environment.
We are offering 3 times a week for in-person workshops and 4 times a week for online workshops using Zoom video conferencing for most of the weeks from June 20th to August 25th. You can register for a specific week or days or for the whole summer, whatever works best for your family. The theme is posted for each week using different mediums (e.g. color and shading pencils, watercolors, oil pastels, acrylic paints etc) for online workshops, it is much more open and flexible for in-person workshops. They receive step by step instructions to complete the drawing and painting in the online workshop and Students can choose the medium they prefer for coloring.
There are suggested paint mediums for the week, but students can use the medium of their choice. All classes are subject to having at least 6 students, and if the class is canceled, you'll get a full refund or you have an option to move to the other class.
