    Mini camp workshops are all mixed ages (4.5+ yrs) and each child gets individual attention to focus on age appropriate projects. Our groups are small and we have plenty of instructors on hand. Children who attend more than one day or week will always be given new projects to do — no repeats!

Class Descriptions
  • Classes for Ages 2 - 4
    The most creative class in town for the youngest artists! Children will work in different mediums learning the basics of art, while completing a finished project each week. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver, whom we encourage to bring their creativity with them as well and fully participate in the fun.

    Classes for Ages 5 and up
    Our classes for ages 5-12 are what we have become known for. Children learn the basics of art in our warm, nurturing environment, where everyone is an artist. Children will learn to use the various mediums – paint, pencil, cray pas, watercolor, and more. Kids will also learn about collage, sculpture, plaster, printmaking and papier mache, while developing their drawing skills and learning to draw and paint from a still life or photograph.

    Teen Portfolio Classes
    For Teens applying to college or advanced fine arts programs, we offer advanced art training, life drawing and help in whatever projects they need to do to complete their college applications.

    All art projects are oriented towards building creativity and technical skills. Students who are working on their portfolios will gain knowledge in art techniques that they can continue to develop throughout the year.  Many demonstrations will be given and an elaborate still life is set up for drawing and painting. Students are given constructive criticism and advice how to approach each project.  Individual exploration and creativity are encouraged. While students may work at their own pace, they are advised to complete the projects.  There are many approaches that range from observational to interpretive.  Students will divide their time between drawing and painting in a variety of media.  Subjects include still life, portrait and figure.

    Adult Art Classes
    Always wanted to learn to draw and paint? This is for you. Any level you’re at, we will teach you the basics of art. If you have already studied art and want to work on a specific area, we will help you with your own on-going interest/projects.  We will teach you the basics of drawing (line, shape, form, color, value, proportion, perspective, light, shadow, texture and composition).  Instruction as well as critique will develop your skills. This class is for beginning to intermediate students who want to expand their drawing skills.

  • Crochet for Beginners
    Learn about crochet and how to do the basic crochet stitches – chain stitch, magic circle, single crochet, double crochet, half-double crochet, etc. We’ll make beautiful small projects like bracelets and necklaces. We will also explore some techniques like making shapes, really cool granny squares, and you can also crochet your first scarf! All materials included.

    Adult Life Drawing Classes
    There will be a live model or still life each week.  These classes are non-instructional. There will be a class monitor and informal critiques.  Artists need to bring their own preferred choice of medium, as well as sketch pad.

    Mixed Age Life Drawing Classes
    There will be a live model or still life each week.  Beginning with a simple contour, students will use line to discover a variety of shapes. Students will draw from life and learn to develop form and space with cross-hatching and shading, understanding what makes a strong composition. Work will be in black and white with charcoal and pencils, and in color with pastels. Informal individual and group critiques. Bring a large 18 x 24 inch rough newsprint pad, a soft cloth or chamois and soft willow charcoal to first class. A supply list will be available prior to the first class.

    All models will be clothed for Mixed Age Life Drawing Classes

    Holiday, Summer and Special Workshops
    During holidays and the summer, we offer week-long half-day workshops for children ages 4 1/2 and up. During this period, we will focus on special projects such as mask-making, puppet-making, clay building & and papier mache.

    From time to time we also offer special workshops concentrating on a specific project, i.e, tie dying, batiking, puppet-making, plaster, etc.  Watch for these!
