Traditional Art Classes

Every student can learn to draw, paint, print…to create art and improve his/her skill.  By training students in classical and traditional processes and techniques, we give them confidence and help them believe in their own ability.  Giving them tools to be successful in the Art Studio helps them develop confidence in their ability and helps them be brave and take on challenges in other areas of their lives.

Studio Classes

Classical studio art-In LWTAS the curriculum is informed by the  Classical Progression.  First , students are immersed in the academic method of drawing. They are taught how to measure the subject in order to render it accurately. Exercises are designed to improve the students drawing skills, with an emphasis on contour, cross contour, proportion and the shape of light and shadow.   Once a student has acquired the requisite drawing skills, they begin to learn the art and science of painting. Painting projects are designed for the first-time painting student. The emphasis is on drawing accuracy, handling the paint, and the careful observation of light and shadow. Students go on to use a limited and the full palette while completing increasingly complex projects.  Color theory is taught at each step.  

The Classical progression is not a quick process.  to get the most out of the program, I hope that each student will stay through the last step of color painting.  Most likely students will not progress to color painting until year two.

Kids Art Classes

Raphael Class(grades 1-3) and Michelangelo Class (grades 4-6)

Both classes are a practical age appropriate and step-by-step curriculum that is used teach the basic principles of line, shapes, shadows and light and perspective through direct observation through demonstration and individual attention. Students are introduced to exciting mediums, techniques and processes including drawing, painting, printmaking and ceramics.
