Drawing painting classes Adults

How many adults do you know that say they do not have an “artistic gene” or who say “I don’t know how to draw a straight line?” Most of us stop drawing at about 10 years of age when we are very critical and self-conscious about ourselves. As Pablo Picasso said, “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

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 and, in some classes, oils.

When can I enroll in a class?

You can enroll at anytime as long as we have space in the class. The tuition for the first month will be prorated based on your enrollment date. Tuition fees listed in the schedule cover four classes.

What is your missed Class Policy?

If you need to miss a class, you can make it up by attending another class. You will need to contact us to schedule your makeup 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.

What material do I need?

Once you are enrolled, we will contact you to discuss your level and objectives for the class and we will let you know about the materials you need.

Do you have other locations?

We have two locations conveniently located in Northwest Austin and Cedar Park.

How young can a student be to attend a class?

We accept students as young as four years old depending upon their level of maturity (how the child handles being without Mom or Dad at their side). For more information or special requests, please contact us.

How is Art Plus Academy different from other art classes?

Our continued class approach (as opposed to a one-time class), small groups and focus on technique, allows us to take each student from a beginner level to an intermediate or advanced level. Through skill development and freedom, we foster individual creativity.

Do you offer scholarships or reduced tuition?

We believe in providing the best instruction by offering a small student-to-teacher ratio. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to offer reduced tuition or scholarships.

Additional questions?

Please feel free to send an email or call us. We’d love to hear from you and provide the information you need!

Punctuality
Please be on time for your class. Do not "drop off" your child early or leave them at the studio past their class time. We are not equipped to watch children that are not enrolled in a class.

Missed class /Make up class Policy

To be able to make up a class the student needs to be enrolled and tuition of the month paid.
To schedule a make-up class please send us an email after reviewing our schedules and let us know the classes that work for you to make-up. We will send a confirmation back in the following 24 hrs.

Inclement weather policy.
In the event of inclement weather, the decision to open or close ART+ Academy will be made no later than 1 p.m. during the week and 8:30 am for the Saturday classes.

Please notice that ART + Academy does NOT follow local school districts closings.

We will communicate to our ART+ families by:
a) A mass e-mail to all students,

c) Our Facebook page:
If we close the Academy due to inclement weather, students can make up their classes following our make-up procedure. ART + Academy does not refund or credit for classes cancelled due to weather.

We also want to stress that we want everyone to use their best judgment at all times and make a personal decision for your and your family based on the roads in your area and your feeling about driving to art classes. Even though we may be open for classes, please don’t feel like you need to travel to the studio if you are questioning the trip at all. We understand and you can make-up the class. Ultimately we want everyone to be safe.

ADULTS

  • I NEVER LEARNED HOW TO DRAW…

    Most of us stop drawing at about 10 years old when we are very critical and self-conscious about ourselves and what we do. As Pablo Picasso said, “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
  • HOW DOES IT WORK?

    We use methods such as Dr. Betty Edwards, “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,” and a combination of warm-up exercises to help you draw realistically. We explore different media such as charcoal and soft pastels to draw and learn about value and shading. We then have students work on several still life compositions, as well as some masterpieces.
  • WHAT MEDIA DO YOU TEACH?

    We can teach you to use charcoal, watercolor, soft pastels, acrylics or oils.
