Art level 1: In this class  for ages 8-12 we will be learning the basics of sculpting forms with clay. Using mostly our hands but also various sculpting tools, we will build cartoony animal figures. When working small, clay is a flexible and forgiving medium; which is perfect for a beginning sculptor.  We will sketch and color some of our favorite characters. Tapping into our artistic side, we will recreate iconic characters using pencil, paper, and markers. Using various free-thinking techniques and exercises we will train our creative side to come alive through canvas painting, oils, chalk and more!

Art Level  2:  This class is designed for ages 13 and up. It is similar to Art Level 1 in that it will use all those forms of art but will focus on harder pieces to be exposed in an art gallery. This class intends to help students get ready for portfolio building for college as well.

Paint with Me: Similar to “Tints, tones, and shades”. However this child class will focus less on color theory and more on experiencing painting as an expression of yourself. Students will paint an object of their choosing. (eg. fruit, flower, soccer ball, sun, etc.)

Pixel Gaming Art: In this class we will be exploring the amazing world of pixel art. Pixel art is a style of video game design, seen in classics like Mario and Zelda. Pixelated images were required because the video game hardware at the time wasn’t capable of displaying high quality images. However, this retro art style is widely used in modern day video games because of the nostalgia it invokes. Prerequisites: Some artistic experience. Student Expectations: Use markers to fill in the squares of graph paper to create a pixel art character.

iPhone Photography: In this class we will explore the simple but powerful features that an iPhone camera has to offer. We will learn proper composition and lighting but also how to edit and enhance already taken photographs. There is no substitute for a professional camera but this class is not geared toward the professional; It is for the individual seeking more knowledge of how to take better pictures with this popular device.
