Children will explore a variety of media in this beginners class that encourages and focuses their interests in drawing, painting, and sculpture. Artists will explore color, shape, and texture through two and three-dimensional projects. Our artists may be young in this studio class, but we have plenty of room for great big creative ideas! Over the course of the session, students will work with pencil, marker, paint, clay, paper, and recycled materials.
