SCArt Academy's Mission

Adult Classes

SCArt Academy's mission is to provide students with intellectually-informed, hands-on instruction in the arts. We integrate a studio-based education into a broad pedagogical framework, taught by working artists. SCArt Academy is founded on the belief that learning and practicing art informs our creative freedom, critical insight, and formal and technical innovation. Our goal is to design both programs and curricula that focus on the arts and that integrate the arts with other disciplines, and to develop a means of training other artists to teach in this manner.

Over the past couple of years, SCArt Academy has been developing a series of lesson plans and projects that focus on particular skills and techniques for painting. We are publishing some of these lessons on line, to give parents an idea of what their children will be doing in the beginning painting classes. We hope to expand on these curricular guidelines as time goes by.

After School Classes

This year we are offering a wider variety of after school art classes. Not only will we provide oil painting classes for beginners and intermediate students, we are offering watercolor and drawing classes, crafternoon classes, and 3D art classes. Classes meet on Tuesday and Friday from 4 - 5:30 and Wednesday from 1:30 - 3:00. The winter session starts February 6th, 2018, and runs through March 23rd. The spring session starts April 17th and runs through May 25th. The cost is $150 for each week session.

Summer Camps

Semi-Private Instruction

At SCArt Academy, we take an integrated approach to teaching art. While we focus on  practical application, we consider meaning and intention as we go. Our beginning oil painters learn how to mix colors, transfer images, compose simple paintings, and paint! As students advance, they learn perspective, color theory, composition and many different techniques. Everyone can do it, we will show you how!
