This is a drawing and painting class for students aged 9+. (If you are looking for a class for younger students, Basic Elements of Drawing and Design is for students aged 5-8 and meets at the same time/location.)

**Note: There are no classes the week of Oct 16 - 22   (MEA) OR Nov 20-26 (Thanksgiving). That is why the class ends Dec 3 -- but there are still 8 classes.

At the Art Academy, instructors truly believe that everyone can learn to draw! Students begin with black and white drawing exercises in pencil and pen and ink. After basic skills are learned, children advance to color in watercolor and oil. All levels of study, from beginning to advanced are accepted.

Throughout history, drawing has always been considered an artist's most prized possession. It is the foundation upon which all other aspects of art are formed. This is true whether an artist chooses to be expressive in a realistic or abstract style. That is why the The Art Academy gives the craft of drawing special attention.

This class is special because two age groups meet at the same time! This way all of your school-age students can take classes with only one drop-off and pick up!
Basic Elements of Drawing and Design for ages 5 to 8 years
Drawing and Painting Fundamentals for ages 9 years and up.
The student-teacher ratio stays at about 5:1 and is tailored to the size of or class. (Register early to make sure there is room!) It is a relaxed atmosphere, but at the same time instructors are serious about helping your child acquire fantastic art skills!

These classes are the same as the ones The Art Academy offers in the mornings and evenings, but the differences are …
(1) Both classes are meeting at the same time — which is great if you have kids in multiple classes — the is the only time both levels are offered at once; and
(2) They are in the afternoon — which works better those who have to do schoolwork in the morning or it doesn't get done.

Target age range: for ages 9 years and up

Cost per child/student: $160 tuition -- Registration and payment should be mailed to HSAdventures Organizer. Please see Yahoo group message archive. **The Art Academy has a very flexible make-up policy, so it is easy to make up a class if you must miss due to illness or another conflict.**
Materials: approximately $40 in supplies which can be purchased as a kit at Wet Paint at a discounted rate and can be used for years.
