[returning in the fall!]

Wednesdays 4:00 – 6:00 pm

The goal of these classes is to provide skill-based learning to create a deeper understanding of the visual imagery that is all around us. At the Atelier we believe that anyone has the ability to create art,  by learning basic skills such as those implemented by Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Each lesson will encourage a child’s creativity while asking them to analyze what they see and apply it in a variety of different exercises.

The classes will focus on emphasizing form primarily using charcoal to establish and build upon a foundation of traditional drawing.
