Teen/Tween Studio: Painting and Drawing

HCA’s After School Teen/Tween Studio:  Painting and Drawing

This class is limited to 8 students.

Join HCA’s Teen/Tween Studio art program for skill-based art making and hands-on projects and activities in ongoing 6-week sessions. Whether students are learning a new art practice or developing their technical and conceptual skills, they explore a variety of visual art media, experiment with techniques and materials, and dive deep into the creative process.

This first 6-week session will focus on painting and drawing in a studio setting.  We will cover a range of disciplines from figure drawing in charcoal to simple still life in pastel to landscape painting in gouache to self-portraits in acrylic. As we mix it up, students are introduced to diverse art making practices, ideas as well as contemporary and historical masters.

Our artists/instructors are experienced art educators who will rotate based on the specific discipline being offered in any one of our 6-week sessions.  Future sessions may include printmaking, ceramics, photography, sculpture, collage, encaustics, jewelry making, etc.
