DIGITAL ART – $225pp – Our newest class offering is making some changes for 2nd quarter. Digital Art will have a Beginner Class for kids who want to learn everything from using brushes, how to layer and painting techniques. Our Intermediate Class is perfect for artists who already know how to navigate the procreate app and want to take their digital art skills to the next level. Whether it’s developing an original character, or learning shading and color techniques, this class will give artists the tools to make amazing works of digital art!! For this class each student will need an iPad with the Procreate app, and an iPad pencil or similar! Monday 4:15-5:15pm Beginner (1st – 12th graders welcome) OR Monday 5:30-6:30pm Intermediate (must have previously taken a Digital Art class with us or complete an audition). Classes are each Monday starting 10/16/23 through 12/18/23. Please visit THIS PAGE to read about the required materials each student must have to attend this class.

ANIME & CARTOON – $225pp – We will teach students how to break down characters into basic shapes so that we can recreate them. Popular cartoon and anime characters will be taught building a student’s skill in drawing, shading and ultimately their ability to draw what they see.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED EXPLORATION for 5th – 12th Graders and Adults – $300pp – Students can pick from a variety of projects with written instructions or design their own project with the guidance of an instructor. This is a drop in class over the course of 3 hours – come for an hour or two or stay the whole time. Example: Student wants to paint a landscape painting so the instructor will give guidance on where to start, collecting images of inspiration, assist if a sketch is needed and give input on how to develop painting to a more advanced level. This goes for Anime, Cartoon, General Art, etc. Instructor is there to assist with creating a syllabus unique to each student…not teach step by step as every student is working on different projects. Based on age and previous work done at the studio we will guide students with where to start. All supplies provided but students are welcome to bring an art piece from home to work on if they have it but not required. 5th – 12th graders we would prefer them to have completed a previous quarter’s classes or a summer camp at our studio. An audition piece can be submitted to show us their skills. This is the place for these grades to work on more intermediate to advanced Anime, Draw Like Disney, General Art and Painting projects. Adults – join by audition or show previous work. Adults can pick any subject to get going. Keep in mind this is NOT a beginner course.
Learning to exercise creativity is all about the choices students make designing their projects and implementing their own ideas. Our small class size (10:1 student/teacher ratio) enables students to develop rapport and trust with the teacher who can guide them in the discovery of their own fine art talents. As a result, our classes often lead to communities of advanced artists who inspire each other creatively.
Wednesdays, Drop In Time 3:30-6:30pm. Classes are each Wednesday starting 10/18/23 through 12/20/23. All supplies provided but students are welcome to bring an art piece from home to work on if they have it but not required
