This is a great age for Art Classes. The kids from 7 – 9 are not self-conscious yet about how their art work “should look.” They are very open to ideas and information. Learning how to draw and feeling confident about it will take them safely beyond the age where most of us decided “we do not know how to draw” or about 10 years old.
In this class, we have a good balance of drawing from imagination and drawing from observation. Drawing from imagination is very important at this age and teaching them a few art concepts that can be applied to their drawings will open their creativity and imagination. We teach drawing from observation and help students to “see” and notice details that will help them to translate it to paper.
We teach about painting in this class including the proper use of brushes, color mixing using watercolors and tempera paint and other mediums such as soft and oil pastels. This class builds confidence and individual creativity in a guided but fun artistic environment.
"Our instructor is not only a professional art teacher ( as is every instructor we've encountered so far) she's also a working artist who regularly exhibits her work. That's what makes this place so different, and so great. This is not arts and crafts time; this is high quality instruction that teaches and hones technical skills."
"My daughter has been attending classes here for the past three years. She loves it! They have taught her so many techniques not available to her in the standard art class at school."
"Art Plus Academy provides not only outstanding instruction, but also a unique sense of community."
