Our summer visual arts course will feature bright, colorful, exciting modern art that has been inspired by art that has been created throughout history.
Each class will feature a different art form inspired by masters throughout the ages.
Students will review these various art forms and then spend time creating their own masterpieces.
Students will get to use their choice of material and receive as much guidance as they require to create fine artwork that they are proud of.
Different mediums will be explored from sculpture, mixed media and paint
Our classes will culminate with an art exhibition, complete with a celebration where families can see the student work on display. Students can share what they learned and explained their pieces to interested guests.
SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE.
