Art ClassesHome School Programs
Our homeschool classes are designed to enable students to explore a variety of mediums, while also making connections between the art they are creating and the world history they learn in the academic setting. Students will have the opportunity to explore both 2 Dimensional and 3 Dimensional art while learning various techniques for each of the materials they are working with during each session

The Study of Light and Dark (6th-12th Grade)
Tuesdays, 4/7 – 5/12, 2:00 – 3:30 PM, $150
Throughout history, artists have used various methods and media to convey light; to capture light; to block light. We will create a clay tea light holder, a fused glass piece, and learn several ways to depict light and shade, from chalks to charcoal. Like the light we illustrate, we will be focused, brilliant, and sparkling.
