We are making a gradual return to programming onsite at the Alliance campus. In order to ensure the health and safety of instructors, students, staff, and patrons, we will limit class size to 6 students and the 2 instructors. All persons will be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing. Rooms will be cleaned and remain dormant for a period of time between classes. If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
So much fun they won’t know they’re learning! This youth class is designed to foster an appreciation of art for students. We will introduce students to a variety of materials and artistic concepts to evoke their curiosity and to hone their natural creativity. Students will cover techniques in pencil, watercolors, mixed media, and acrylics. Students will advance their skills of observation and will cover concepts such as form, value, light and shadow, color, and proportions—and, how to utilize these concepts to convey their personal vision. With an emphasis on exploration, professional artists teach students in a fun, relaxed environment where they can express their creativity and gain self-confidence. The techniques developed do not stop here; students utilize these new skills artistically, academically, and interpersonally.
