KIDS 9-12 ART CLASSES

Get inspired! Learn how to draw!

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 $29 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.

Additional questions?
Please feel free to send an email or call us. We’d love to hear from you and provide you with 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
If a student misses a class, they 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.
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.

No parents allowed in the classroom
We believe children should be able to enjoy and focus on their art class. For this purpose, we ask parents to wait in the lobby or waiting area to avoid disruptions in the class. Please call us or discuss it with the teacher if you have any concerns about this policy.

Payment
Payment is due the first week of the month. Please call us if you have any questions about payments, discounts and special offerings.

Discount policy for weekly classes
Additional Family Members will receive $5 off monthly tuition for additional family members.

Cancellation policy for weekly classes
A minimum of two weeks advanced notice before the class period starts is required to receive a full refund. Cancellations made after the two week advanced notice period will be refunded less a $30 cancellation fee. Cancellations made THREE days before the class begins ARE NOT eligible for a refund.

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,
b) A post in our website in the page “Student’s Corner”
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.
