We have developed a series of specifically designed courses that progress one to the next. Our trained teachers guide student through the fundamentals of drawing all the way through to painting. We firmly believe that drawing and painting are learned skills not magical gifts. With that in mind students start with the BASIC DRAWING course then progress to MASTERINGTONE and then onto OIL PAINTING. In a short amount of time student will gain the ability to draw and paint anything.
Open to ages 12 and up. Students can begin the academy anytime.
Open to all ages 8 and up. Students progress at their own speed.
