 The Art Academy
The Basic Elements of Drawing and Design
Ages 5-8 Artwork

Book illustration teaches drawing, coloring, and design.  Acrylic painting improves students color mixing abilities, color temperature understanding, and reinforces composition skills.  Please Click on smaller images below to enlarge them.  The Silver Scroll Buttons will load more artwork into the Gallery.
Instructors give lessons on important principles of art.  Students then use what they learn to improve their work.
A young student learns to mix color and paint confidently.  The skills practiced in our 5-8 classes provide the foundation for later study in watercolor and oil painting.
 Please Note: At The Art Academy we have a great reverence for tradition, and thus many of the pictures that appear on this website are copies of professional artists’ works. For centuries students have learned the foundations of art by studying and reproducing the great works of the past. All copies were made solely for educational purposes.
