Drawing/Painting - Beginner

*No class during the July 4th holiday

Take your skills to the next level!  Learn advanced studio technique and complete portfolio-ready artwork.  

With a mixture of group and individual instruction, students will learn the fundamentals of drawing and painting, and walk away with stronger abilities and greater confidence. Supplies included with registration cost.  The Academy will end in a final exhibition for family and friends (more details to be shared).

This Academy course is for self-selected beginner drawing/painting students.  Should you feel you have more advanced skills, we do also offer a Drawing/Painting - Advanced course.
