New projects each session! 10 mediums are covered!
Small class sizes, with a maximum of 15-18 (studio dependent) with 2 instructors.
Close age ranges among students registered for each session class time.
Teachers present 2 or 3 projects in a class that the students are able to choose from, projects are displayed in the studio.
Projects and materials are presented in small groups, everyone gets detailed step by step instructions to get started. From there, students work at their own pace to complete their projects with teachers at hand to guide and support them.
We keep records of what each student completes during class. This allows us to make detailed lesson plans to follow the students’ interests and skill levels, and ensure we are not repeating what they have already completed
Students choose 1 project from 2 medium choices introduced by the teacher each class. Creativity is encouraged!
They choose what they want to do, plan out their project based on the presentation, and follow through with their artistic plan to complete the projects.
We introduce projects in “levels” to focus on skill building so the student can feel confident when planning and creating their own project. This allows more room for creativity with a better understanding of the mediums.
Students get to explore a variety of mediums to try new and different things. If they love one medium, they can mostly focus on that one if they so choose.
Students are encouraged to enjoy the process and to be truly proud of what they accomplish.
Small class sizes means students get individual attention and one on one feedback and encouragement.
We use professional art materials and tools, our lessons focus on technique as well as introducing appropriate terminology. We also teach how to take care of the tools and the studio environment.
Our art teachers place emphasis on manners, kindness and building independence. This is how we work together in an art studio 🙂
We encourage students to attend on the same day and time as much as possible. However, if there is a day your child will have to miss, they may attend a different day that week to make up. Please let the instructor know to expect you beforehand. No credits or refunds for missed classes. All make up classes must be completed within the session the student is registered is in. Make up classes do not transfer over to another session. Maximum 2 make up classes per session.
Please do not arrive or drop off more than 5 minutes before classes begin as we really need planning time before the class to make sure the studio is prepared to welcome our students.
In order to make sure we have an open line of communication with parents:
