Express your creativity through drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, and crafts
Our remote learning course includes two instructors, professionally trained artists with years of teaching experience, who have collaborated on an engaging and fun program - they will rotate giving teaching demos with monitoring the progress in the class. Class size is limited to ensure one-on on-attention and art supply lists will be provided.
Diverse and fun project activities will be offered with a serious approach to art-making. We will focus on the fundamental concepts and processes in the fine arts including the study of various drawing techniques, experimentation with different media such as acrylic, tempera, and watercolor paints, explorations in collage, sculpture, and clay and special projects based on the works in the Neuberger Museum’s renowned art collection. Group discussion and one-on-one instruction are essential parts of the program, with special attention given to the specific needs of each student.
At the conclusion of the program all our young artists will come together for a virtual art exhibit. It will be open to family and friends, and allow the students an opportunity for recognition of the work they create during the program.
