Fall classes have started here at Acorn! Don’t miss out on painting time! Sign up today for a class that fits your child’s age group.
Children ages 5 to 11: Introducing each child to the visual world and how to approach it on the two-dimensional surface. Through art, your child will learn motor skills, eye coordination, sequencing instruction, and social skills. While in a creative and nurturing environment, the student will be introduced to the fundamentals of light, perspective, color, and drawing. The classes meet once a week for an hour. All materials are supplied except for a canvas panel.
Ages 13 & 14 after completion of Pre-Portfolio: Where the information from Pre-Portfolio 1 comes to life. Students combine knowledge from Pre-Portfolio 1 with their natural creativity and create images inspired by artists from art history. Each month an artist from history is chosen for class discussion. We talk about their contribution to the art world and the changes and responses it curtailed. Afterwards, each student is given an assignment of their own creation relating to that artist’s work.This class meets twice a week. All materials are included, except for a canvas.
Geared towards the individual, from beginner to advanced. In a 3 hour time span, students can learn as much as they want with their own freedom of expression.
Formal enrollment is not required; drop-ins are welcome during the designated Adult Class times. This class includes all supplies except a canvas. All Materials are non-toxic, and adults are permitted to bring in their own supplies for personal use, if they choose.
