Basic Art: This art program is designed for artists ages 8 and up. It is a beginning level art class that is designed to be fun and structured. This course offers students the foundations of basic drawing and painting skills and the ability to explore various mediums such as graphite, charcoal, color pencil, watercolor and acrylic paint. Students will be taught the elements of art and the principles of design. While learning, they will be encouraged to develop and master techniques as well as a creative thinking process.
