Art Classes for Adults

How many adults have you heard say that they “do not have an artistic bone in their body” or who say “I can’t even draw a straight line”?

Most of us stop drawing around 10 years of age when we become self-conscious and very critical of ourselves. As Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” The good news is that learning how to draw is like learning to ride a bicycle or playing an instrument; you can learn and we can teach you.

Our adult classes offer personalized instruction depending on the experience of the student and their interests. Everyone in the class can work on different projects and at different levels.

For adult students who are beginners, we start with drawing instruction. We like the method of Dr. Betty Edwards, who wrote “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” and we use it with our students. As part of this curriculum, we review: contour line, cross contour line, negative space, perspective and basic shading techniques. We mainly use pencil and paper at first. Once basic skills are mastered, we encourage students to work with charcoal and soft pastels and go deeper to understand values and shading.

For experienced students, we have an initial talk to determine the current level of the student and discuss their interests and objectives for the class. We then suggest a series of projects that will strength the skills they need to improve or teach a new medium they have not experienced before. Students can choose from charcoal, pencil, watercolor, soft and oil pastels and acrylics.

 

When can I enroll in a class?
You can enroll anytime as long as we have space in the class. The tuition for the first month will be prorated based on your enrollment date.

What does the monthly tuition cover?
The tuition covers FOUR art classes that meet once per week. There is a quarterly registration fee every September, December and March for child and teen classes. For adult classes, there is an annual registration fee.
Some homeschool classes are marked as bi-weekly and meet twice a month.

When do the classes end?
During the school year we offer on going classes from September through the end of May. You can join any time. You can cancel and stop payments s by notifying us by the 15th of the month to avoid the next monthly charge.
During the summer, we offer one-week summer camps and weekly classes in sets of 4 or 6 sessions.

What if I miss a class? If you need to miss a class, you can make up your missed class by attending another class as long as you are currently enrolled. You will need to contact us to schedule your make-up class. However, there is ABSOLUTELY NO PRORATING NOR REFUND for missed classes. "Missed" classes cannot be used as a "class credit" for the next session.

Please be aware that parents ARE NOT ALLOWED to sit in the class or inside the studio area. Parents in the classroom during class can be disruptive to the teacher, other students, and your own child. Please wait in the lobby area until the class has finished. Please contact us if you have any specific concerns about this policy.

We are not equipped to watch/babysit children after their class time has ended. There is a $2 fee per minute for children picked up after our 10-minute “grace period” window.
