Step 1: Choose Your Lesson!
*Foundations (Ages 5-7)- lessons focus on creating a growth mindset, laying a strong foundation, strengthening fine motor skills, refining hand-eye coordination, and encouraging imagination, creativity, and experimentation with art tools and materials. Emphasis is placed on freedom and choice. Students will explore their own strengths while creating beautiful works of art!
*Formal (Ages 8-11)- lessons focus on refining skill and technique. Emphasis is placed on the formal content of art education, including art elements and design principles, aesthetics, history, production, and criticism. The goal is to refine the eye and the hand.
*Portfolio Development (11-14)- One-on-one instruction with regular consultation for feedback and critique. Develop and prepare a portfolio based on the audition requirements of your Magnet/High School. Ideally, we should begin working during the spring semester of 7th grade year to be prepared for the audition during the spring semester of 8th grade year. This program is flexible for anyone who wishes to build a portfolio, or gain more experience.
*Master Classes (18+)- For adult creatives who are interested in developing and/or strengthening their drawing/painting skills. Improve your technique and build a formal foundation that will help you become more sophisticated in your craft.
Step 2: If applicable, read the Parent Information Sheet!
I consider it a privilege to be in this aspect of your child’s life. Before we begin art lessons, I would like to share important information with you in order to ensure proper progress. Goals are designed around student interests and parent preferences. Goals should be discussed and organized with me prior to the first lesson.
