ART classes children 9 to 12 yrs old

Drawing and painting classes for children.

Learning how to draw is a great asset for children of this age. Drawing allows them a way to express themselves, a tool to use when they are bored, a way to express their ideas to others and a source of joy, confidence and self-esteem. However, around 10 years old children become very critical of their art work. This is the age when most people stop drawing because they are convinced they can not do it.
In this class we teach children:

  1. Three-dimensional drawing:   Through the review of 12 concepts, the children learn: foreshortening, contour lines, basic perspective, size and other concepts that help make their drawings look 3D.   We teach children this by fostering their imagination to create something they do not physically see.
  2. Realistic drawing: Using the proven methods of Dr. Betty Edwards, “How to Draw with the Right Side of the Brain,” we teach children “how to see” so they can do a realistic drawing. This part of the class is introduced in intervals along with the 3D drawings.
  3. Exploring media types:   As the children learn basic drawing and they progress, we introduce: charcoal, soft and oil pastels, watercolors, tempera and acrylic paints.

During the school year: Our weekly classes for children run from September to May.  You can enroll any time if we have space in the class.  You do not need to wait for the beginning of the month to enroll (we will pro-rate tuition if that is the case).

The students will take advantage of our small teacher/ratio having a quality instruction while developing a love for art. If you do not find space in the class you want, please register in the waiting list, and we will contact you with some options.

Tuition during the school year covers FOUR art classes which meet once a week. There is a $35 registration fee every quarter in Sep, Dec and March.

During Summers: Our schedule changes to open space for half-day Summer Camps in the mornings and afternoons as well as a reduced number of weekly classes.

We will provide all the art material for the class.

When can I enroll in a class?
You can enroll anytime as long as we have space in the class. Tuition for the first month will be prorated based on your enrollment date. For tuition fees, please see our class schedule.

Do you have other locations?
We have two locations conveniently located in Northwest Austin and Cedar Park.

Do you have classes for Adults?
Yes. We have classes for adults, children and teens. For more information, please visit our class schedule.

How young can a student be to enroll in a class?
Students can start 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, allow us to take each student from a beginner level to an intermediate or advanced level through skill development and freedom to foster individual creativity. Measurable results can be achieved by each student after 12 weeks of continuous instruction!

What is your class make-up policy?
A student can attend another regular class provided there is room available. However, there is ABSOLUTELY NO PRORATING NOR REFUND for missed classes. "Missed" classes cannot be used as a "class credit" for the next session. See our class policies.

Do you offer scholarships or reduced tuition?
We believe in providing the best teachers and facilities to our students and unfortunately cannot afford to offer reduced tuition or scholarships.
