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 6-9 year old cohort, each session yields a "final" work or project that is shared and discussed. For the 10-12 year old students, the focus shifts to skills-based instruction with an emphasis on drawing, painting, design, and composition.
