This class provides students with an opportunity to choose projects and refine their skills in drawing, shading, and color mixing. Students enjoy working with watercolors, oil pastels and acrylics in this studio class.  Zoom classes are very popular with tweens and teens, allowing them the chance to create under guided instruction while hanging out with their friends!  Using materials they have at home students have created beautiful work this year including magnolia blossoms, red pandas, Picasso line portraits, figure drawings of Kobe Bryant, rainbow drip paintings of zebras and more!  There are no makeups for the zoom classes, but students can request a recording of the class if the instructor is notified before the class.

Private lessons are available for Teens and Adults upon request.  Tuition $30/half hour.
