Drawing - Students will learn how to "draw what they see" using pencil, charcoal and pastel. They will learn how to take what they see and put it on paper. They will learn shape, form, proportions, and values.
Painting - We explore all areas of painting including oil, acrylic, & watercolor. Students will learn how to properly use a paintbrush and how to make proper brush strokes and blending techniques.
Sculpture - students will learn how to make three dimensional objects learning form, positive and negative space. We will use a large variety of materials including traditional clay sculpture to paper mache and recycled materials.
Printmaking - Students will explore from styrofoam boards to linoleum to collagraphs! We experiment with different types of paper, cardboard, ink, paint and collage in this fun art form.
Illustration - Students will learn to develop a character from their minds and develop their worlds and how to put in on paper! They will develop important skills such as proportions and light and shadow and work in a variety of media!
Our classes run for 12 week sessions to allow for students to have time to learn concepts and develop and complete complicated art pieces.
Our classes are built around age and skill level. Our pre-school age and open create classes are 45 min once a week, our beginner Mixed Media classes are an 1 1/2 hour once a week, our intermediate and teen classes are two hours once a week and our adult studio classes are 2 1/2 hours once a week.
For the Fall 2019 Session we will close Oct 14, Oct 31, and Nov 28 & 29. All sessions are calculated so that each class will run for 12 classes.
If we have to cancel due to unsafe weather conditions parents/students will be contacted by email, phone or text as well as posting to our Inspired Minds Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/inspiredmindsart/ .
We will extend the session to make up for the missed classes up to two cancellations. No monetary refund can be provided.
Although rare, due to illness or personal reasons sometimes our teachers can not make it to class. In that event we will find a qualified substitute teacher. If we can not find a substitute we will have to cancel the class and extend the session to make up for the missed class.
We will honor up to three absences per session to be made up in age appropriate classes during the current session or the immediate following session. We are sorry but beyond three cancellations or if they are not made up in the immediate following session we can not provide make-up classes in subsequent sessions. We can not provide monetary refunds.
