Youth Classes

“At The Drawing Studio, no matter what your age or skill level, you are treated as an artist.”

— Safia Francis, Art of Summer student

The Art of Summer 2017

The Art of Summer is our signature youth program offered May through July. Art of Summer students receive up to 100 hours of visual arts instruction from teaching artists, exploring still-life, portraiture, landscape, design, sculpture, and more! The summer program culminates in a gallery show, where youth can showcase and sell their work.

JUNIOR CLASSES (Age 9-12)

Junior Immersion students learn the fundamentals of drawing from direct observation, with ample time to experiment in various media. Learn both still life and portraiture. Explore color, collage, sculpture, and more. Each week will offer unique projects, so aspiring artists can (and are encouraged to) register for more than one. All materials included.
