Art classes for teenagers

Join us in an impactful 5 week drawing course. This class is designed to help students develop an artist’s healthy habits, which includes drawing every day (if your child doesn’t have a sketchbook already, we highly recommend purchasing one).

Instructor: Daniel Williams

Each Monday, we’ll meet to practice drawing basic and complex forms, perspective, and anatomy. During these workshops, students will learn and build upon the fundamentals of drawing. Daniel will help to breakdown complicated subjects into techniques that can be easily understood and executed.
