Children’s Art Classes
Unleash Your Child’s Creativity
What happens when a child with an active imagination learns the real fundamentals of fine art? Artistic miracles result and the child’s self-esteem literally soars.
Fashioned from the same fine art basics used for over 25 years in our renowned adult program, our children’s program utilizes Larry Gluck’s revolutionary method of instruction and proven techniques, providing each student with the needed skills to unleash his or her creativity and ability to produce beautiful works of art.
Step-by-step, a caring, highly trained instructor individually teaches each child the ABCs of art.
Students, as young as 5, begin gaining a solid foundation in drawing techniques in their very first class. Using a charcoal pencil and pastels, students learn to build a drawing through the use of simple shapes and how to create colorful, 3-dimensional effects, resulting in their finished work looking life-like.
Seeing the beaming faces of a child and their parent when the student completes their latest piece of art is one of the great pleasures of instructing at Mission: Renaissance.
The amazing world of watercolor is the next step for students. Each student gains knowledge of the materials used in watercolor and how to use them to create beautiful paintings. Students also learn the difference between primary and complimentary colors and how to mix a wide array of colors. The result is what can only be described as “incredible” works of art.
Learning to paint in oils is the student’s next adventure. A series of painting drills are completed by the student, each helping to build greater understanding and skill.
Students learn the techniques used by great master painters of the past, such as: Monet, Manet, Cezanne’, Rembrandt and more. With these techniques students create amazing works of art and eventually their own original paintings in whatever style they choose.
Unleashing your child’s talent and creativity is as easy as 1,2,3. Schedule your child to attend a Free Introductory Lesson at the Mission: Renaissance studio nearest you.
