Classes accommodate 20 students each day, attendees create one work of art per month.
Projects range from sculpture, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, & color pencil. Students learn the basic principles of art including line, color, shape, etc. putting these skills into practical use by creating a completed work of art each month. Students experience forms of art such as sculpting, painting, pastels, & charcoal.
This program will run from November 2022 to October 2023, ending in a gallery showing of the student's artwork. This event will celebrate the student's growth as artists and humans, highlighting their dedication to classes, themselves, and their craft.
