Friday: Advanced Painting

SCArt Academy classes are fairly informal, and are limited to twelve students each. Because the groups are small, we offer very personalized attention. This allows us to combine beginning and intermediate students in the same grouping, so all ages and skill levels are welcome to enroll in each class. However, this year we are reserving our Friday after school class for our advanced students.

Our Fall classes focus on painting, although Tuesday will add a more fully developed drawing element, and Wednesday will incorporate multi-media. Each painting class will focus on a master artist. Not all sessions encompass the same activities, and some students may not finish all the activities in the allotted time. Many of our activities are seasonally inspired, such as painting pumpkins or an apple still life in the fall. Each student works at his or her developmental level. Missed sessions can be made it up at a mutually convenient time, either with another class or in a semi-private setting.


Wednesday classes focus on many different media and techniques, including various sorts of paints, oil pastels, water color painting, multi-media art, collage, air dry clay projects as well as arts & crafts. This class is appropriate for both beginners and intermediate students.
