Art Explorations 2016-17

Art Explorations

Art Explorations- this signature class of Artworks Studio stresses the process not the product helping to develop improved skills in art. Students will delve into fun projects in drawing, painting, printmaking, and mixed media. Lessons are aimed to help students develop improved skills in art with fun introductions to line, shading, color theory, sculpture, painting and material handling for all new and repeating students. Every year is a little different with the same goal in mind: for students to have fun with art while learning the basics through many medias.

Classes are offered in one hour sessions once a week during the school year.

Tuition is $45.00 per student a month. Tuition needs to be paid by the first of each month. For your convenience we can set you up on auto pay (ACH). In order for your student to get maximum use of our time together I ask that they arrive promptly and ready to jump right into class.
Supply Fees- each student is assessed a one-time $55.00 supply fee payable at the time of registration. This fee covers the cost of supplies for the entire year.
Classes start Tuesday September 6th 2016

Art is not a thing it's a way


“If we removed all the art in the lives of our children,
there is no way that
adding more math,
increasing more reading,
requiring more science,
mandating more foreign language,
or scheduling more computer courses
could replace what they would have lost.”– Unknown
