Scroll down to view project examples.

Students will bring home at least 3 works of Art! A finished painting, a clay sculpture and a craft. Each piece is sure to dazzle you!

Students choose what they want to create.

Art Adventures does not “tell” students what to make. We allow the students to choose their subject. We show them how to use tips, tricks and techniques to bring THEIR ideas to life! Usually, every student in class is making something completely different from their neighbor. This removes student thoughts like “her Art is better than mine”. Instead, we often hear, “Ohhhh, your project is AWESOME! I want to try that next time!”; which builds self confidence and joy in students.

DRAW & PAINT:

Throughout the week students work on their picture. Students will move from drawing to full color on their piece. Choosing from high quality paint (watercolor, tempera or acrylics), oil pastels, chalk pastels, professional cartooning markers, and more, students will bring their drawings to life!
Some subject students may choose from include:
Learning to draw and paint animals, landscapes, people, comic book design, still life, planes and cars, and advanced 3-dimensional rendering.

CLASS DYNAMICS:

If you were to walk into an Art Adventures DRAW &  PAINT class, you would notice that each student is working at their own pace to create a work of art that is unique. For example, one student may be designing a comic book while his neighbor is painting a unicorn splashing through a mystical pink sunset. Another student may be detailing the foreground flowers of a landscape, while yet another student is creating the realistic texture of her family dog’s fur.

In a MULTI-MEDIA class, you may see a student creating a clay rendering of her family pet, while another is manufacturing a hot air balloon out of paper mache. Her neighbor may be carving linoleum to make a series of ink prints while an older sibling is meticulously sculpting hand made beads for a hand made metal cuff bracelet.

Because of this variety and 1:1 instruction, students can take the SAME class again and again. Each time they make a new painting or sculpture, they will learn new techniques and processes.

Art Adventures is formal Art training and confidence building masked with music, smiles, interesting subjects, intuitive teachers, ORIGINALITY and IMAGINATION!

ALL AGES, K-8, MAY JOIN ANY CLASS:

This unique teaching style, also allows students of a wide age rang and skill level to co-exist in the same class. In other words, a Kindergartner learning how to draw an animal can work side by side with a 5th grader learning perspective who is beside a 9th grader working on a canvas portrait. Likewise, serious students who are looking for advanced instruction can move at a fast pace and explore complex techniques, while a student wanting introductory sessions can let loose and be free to embrace a loose creative exploratory experience.

It is great CREATIVE FUN for everyone!

ALL styles of art are embraced in the same class.

I firmly believe that students should not be taught to paint “like the teacher”. I believe we are ALL uniquely creative individuals and it is MY job to pull the creative individuality out of each student. Learning to paint like I do would ultimately stifle student creativity. I feel is is imperative to embrace each students gifts, passions and individuality.My job is to help students SHINE! I do teach formal Art techniques, but I carefully interlace it with each students personality and individual creative style. We have so much FUN!    -Amy Barr, Owner
