WHAT TO EXPECT
Each lesson will encourage your child’s inherent creativity through drawing and watercolor fundamentals. Our focus will be on the foundational elements of art – line, shape, space, value, form, texture, and color. By the end of the school year, your child will have a strong foundation of drawing techniques, watercolor technique, color theory, and the elements of all visual art as well as great design. Your child will also learn to pull inspiration from famous artists and nature.
An Engaging + Fun Environment
We understand that kids need to be kids and we are passionate about helping them explore and learn in an approachable, inclusive, energetic and fun environment. We are providing art lessons but also giving your child an outlet to relieve their stress and express their personalities through creativity. We have intentionally chosen to cap our class sizes at 10 children per class. And with two teachers per class, we can ensure that your child will receive personal and age-appropriate guidance. Every child will be encouraged to explore their own curiosity and individuality at any skill level.
A Celebration of Creativity
We will finish each semester with a gallery show, where we can come together to celebrate your child’s progress across the semester. There will also be opportunities during the semester for you to order products featuring your child’s original artwork.
WHO WE ARE
Hi, we are Emily Drew and Beth -- professional artists, creators and entrepreneurs that share a love and reverence for the creative process. We’ve spent so many enjoyable hours drinking coffee, talking and dreaming out loud, and ultimately discovering that our core beliefs are:
Creativity is an inherent quality in every person.
Art is a gift to the world. It should be shared, seen, appreciated and accessible to every person - but especially children.
Art and beauty have the power to inspire, transform and heal.
Creative expression is good for overall health.
Creativity is not limited to fine art - it influences critical thinking skills in the spheres of sports, academics, and business. We are committed to cultivating the whole child.
