Art Academy is an after-school class designed for students who wish to develop and grow their artistic aptitude. Throughout each six week session, students learn and practice foundational skills in the visual arts and are exposed to a variety of mediums in both the 2D and 3D arts. Art Academy students also develop strong visual literacy and critical thinking skills through looking at and discussing their own artwork and the artwork of others. For the 6-10 year old cohort, each session yields a "final" work or project that is shared and discussed. For the 11-14 year old students, the focus shifts to skills-based instruction with an emphasis on drawing, painting, design, and composition.
*For the first session of spring 2021, both Art Academy classes will be offered virtually on Zoom. We hope to offer in-person classes or a hybrid model the second session of spring. That decision will be made in March. If you have any questions about the format or how it works, feel free to contact us.
