This is a drawing and painting class for children ages 5yrs-8 years. (If you are looking for a class for 9+ -- we have a Homeschool Drawing and Painting Fundamentals class meeting at the same time for older students!)

At the Art Academy, instructors truly believe that everyone can learn to draw! There is one teacher for every 4-6 students, ensuring a great deal of one-on-one attention so your student can really advance their drawing and painting skills.

Make-up policy is very generous if you need to miss due to illness or another activity.

In this class students initially concentrate on color, composition, and basic drawing. After students have gained an elementary understanding of design and color theory, they further develop their drawing skills and are introduced to painting.

First time students learn by illustrating a children’s book. Students sketch ideas, improve their drawings, and color their illustrations to create a wonderful keepsake of their artistic beginnings. Returning students advance into acrylic painting, refining their picture-making skills and exploring painting techniques.
