Art Lessons for Kids (8-12)


Encourage the budding artist in your child!

Children will explore art through guided instruction in the fundamentals of drawing, painting and sculpting. They’ll have the freedom to initiate project ideas and therefore will enjoy the entire process, from concept to a completed work of art. (Projects typically take 6-8 sessions to complete.) This teaching method builds skills while keeping the student motivated. Class size is limited to ensure individual guidance. Learn more here.

Depending on what the student wants to focus on, he/she will learn:  

  • how to take an idea and develop it into a finished piece
  • how to mix paints to any colour
  • how to scale up using a grid
  • how to transfer a drawing to canvas
  • sketching techniques
  • painting techniques
  • working with acrylic mediums
  • working with clay (hand building with coil or slab methods)
  • working with paper mache`
  • and more!


Ongoing classes allow students to work at their own level and pace while developing skills and confidence!
