Thank you for your interest.

Students ages 9-13 build skills through drawing, pen and ink, and watercolor. Tonal studies in pencil, colored pencil, charcoal and pastel are other options to improve students’ abilities. Eventually, students advance into oils.

Above all, we offer a variety of classes to suit your pre-teen's growing and changing interests in the arts.

Classes meet once a week on their scheduled day. Review our schedule to find out when course terms start & end, and please see the registration page for class days and times. Our school also has a generous make-up policy.
