Children always enjoy this class, as they are introduced to formal training in a fun and engaging manner.  Our program stimulates visual awareness while helping kids develop REAL skills.  Learning to measure for proportions, seeing shadows and highlights, composition, and developing control of the medium are the primary elements we work on with children.  Miss Channah will lead students in draw-along sessions featuring different subjects each time.  After the daily draw-along segment, students have free-draw time, where creative choices are combined with classroom learning.  This class is designed to be on-going for young artists, and they are encouraged to take as much drawing as possible.  Reinforcement, synthesis, and practice are the vital components for dynamic visual learning, nurtured by creativity and freedom of choice.  Learning is an evolutionary process, with personal growth building and compounding with each lesson.  The "aha" moments come at different times for each young child, as they are all complex and unique individuals, with brains processing information in different ways.  We understand this, and therefore limit our class sizes to guarantee individual attention.  Drawing and Color & Creative Design are both required as prerequisites to the Painting class with Gregory Grant.

Drawing, Intermediate to Advanced  $90
Sessions 1, 2 and 3:  8:00am-9:20am, age 12 and up
Greg Grant, Instructor

Drawing is one of the most important classes we offer, as it is the basis for
all forms of visual interpretation.  This class is for serious students who wish
to improve profeciency while working independently in charcoal, pastel,
graphite, pen & ink/watercolor, etc. from photos and direct observation. 
(The use of photos is for reference only.  For finished works, students are
expected to significantly change the intended context  of such photos to
coincide with their own original design).  Composition, dynamic and
sensitive mark-making, light, proportion, perspective, and creative content
are all emphasized comensurate with the level of the student.  They will
explore subjects which will challenge them at whatever skill level they have
attained.   Greg Grant also provides specialty training for high school
students interested in taking AP Art, and for students who need to build
portfolios for college admissions.

Life Drawing*  $90
Thursday evenings, 5:00pm-7:00pm, ​​Age 15-18,  June 8 - July 27

Greg Grant, Instructor

​This is a collegiate-level figure drawing class designed to give serious students
exposure to working from the nude model.  Traditional croquis (quick pose)
sessions from real time video and stills of the draped and undraped figure will
help to prepare students for their first life class experience in college.  Life
drawing is a vital part of visual art education, and required of college art majors. 
*For advanced students.  Excellent for college prep, and for potential AP Studio
Art students.

​Students will do a classic still life painting in oil from direct observation.  Traditional oil painting methods are taught, emphasizing many important cognates such as drawing and measuring, craftsmanship, composition, color theory and paint mixing, the understanding of light and form, and finally, the utilization of visual metaphors which define the creative thought process.  Oils are rich and buttery, and allow for beautiful gradations and glazes because of the extended drying time.  We take care to teach safe and proper techniques to students to ensure that their masterpieces will last for centuries.  Only non-toxic oils, solvents, and mediums are allowed at the ArtQuest studio.
​*For advanced students.  Excellent for college prep, and for potential AP Studio Art students.

Sessions 1, 2, and 3:  9:30-10:50, or 11:00-12:20  Age 10 to 18
​Greg Grant, Instructor

Using non-toxic acrylic paints, students achieve remarkable results with traditional techniques on canvas.  Color mixing/theory, materials and methods, and application of drawing skills are stressed for first time painters, while more experienced students are encouraged to try increasingly creative and advanced projects.  This is a great class to prepare students for high school AP Art.  Please note that the ArtQuest School provides formal art training for serious children, teens, and adults wishing to improve skill levels.  We do not offer recreational single class "drink and paint" sessions.  *Prerequisites:  Drawing for all students.  Younger students must also have taken Color & Creative Design.
