art kids studio 

curriculum

art kids studio engages in curriculm founded in traditional art studio classes emphasizing life drawing and imagination. Core classes in Drawing, Painting and Sculpture advance personal artistic expression through building skills in observation and a variety of media. Special Classes offered like Comic Books/Novels or Building Books stimulate the imagination in storymaking and train students in the basics of figurative drawing and construction.

 

As a practicing artist, I am avidly exploring new directions in media and ideas for my own work and the classes I teach.  As well as new lessons, new curriculum is always a priority.  

Future classes will be added as I am inspired.
