About

At our academy there is a carefully designed art education curriculum, based on a continuum of concepts from old traditions and old techniques, combined and applied with modern ideas. Every effort is made to accommodate individual needs, we do our best to shape and mold the artist within every student. Using a model that has existed since the Renaissance, our teachers introduce the discipline of Western Art to educate with the classic practice of drawing. This is an empirical activity that involves seeing, interpreting, and discovering appropriate marks to reproduce an observed phenomena. It can be asserted that other art activities involve imaginative interpretation. Philosophy of esthetics, ontology, semantics, studio praxis (empirical investigation), and phenomenology are also applied as needed. Past experience shows a great deal of success exercising students brains’ right hemispheres to help with delateralizing their thinking. With the encouragement of art education, students not only learn how to manipulate traditional and modern tools and mediums in the art creation process, but also learn to perceive their individual works of art as representations of themselves and to openly attempt to understand the emotional representations in the work of fellow artists...

After-School Fine Art Program : Ages 6-15
Does your child enjoy art at school but wishes for more time to draw, color, paint, and be creative? This class is designed for students who want that extra time and show a great interest in fine art creation. We recommend this program for children age 5 year olds and up, who are passionate about playing and creating with mix media arts. All levels of students, from beginning to advanced, are accepted. Children will start with a light snack and a mini meditation session before focusing on introductory exploration of the arts such as drawing, painting, and more. Parents will be surprised by the end of each semester when students bring home their unique creations!... Show more
Homeschool Fine Art Fundamentals Program: Ages 6-17
Homeschool Fine Art Fundamentals Program: Ages 6-17
Our homeschool classes follow our drawing and painting fundamentals program. Students begin with black and white drawing exercises in pencil and pen and ink. After basic skills are learned, children advance to color in watercolor, gouache, acrylic, oil. All levels of study, from beginning to advanced are accepted. In our homeschool program, special emphasis is placed on teaching the fundamentals of drawing logically and simply. Our methods promote sound draftsmanship, which dramatically improves a student’s drawing abilities. With continued practice children can then achieve higher levels of understanding and success. Many of our initial drawing exercises are executed in pen and ink so students become familiar with the expressive qualities of line, and aid in improving a student’s control and focus. Students continue to improve their drawing skills when they move on to painting.... Show more
