Young Artist Drawing & Painting (8-12 yrs)
This semester students will be introduced to a more in depth understanding of color, mark making, and technical drawing. With a choice of different subject matter and varying levels of difficulty each week, students will also have the freedom to choose the things they love while also improving their artistic skills. The lessons and visual aids will be communicated by the teacher on Wednesday, and the students are encouraged to work on their assignments for at least 1/2 an hour prior to Sunday. They will get the chance to ask any questions and receive timely feedback between Wed and Sat, with an individual video critique with Felicia on Sunday. This can include live demonstrations, corrections, and advice.

Portfolio Development for Teens:
Students will have a unique chance to continue to build their foundational drawing and painting skills while working on advanced concepts and compositions that supplant their growing portfolios. The instructor will give students individual projects and suggestions for projects that will strengthen the content and quality of their work catered to the AP art exam or the college requirements they are applying for. Furthermore if students need additional assistance with work on a more individualized basis than what they can get from their schools, the instructor is more than happy to assist.
Students will turn in photo references and works in progress to the instructor on Wednesdays. This would require the student to at least start preliminary sketches or at least 1 hour of progress so the instructor can maximize the amount of critique and instruction time for each student. They will get the chance to ask any questions and receive timely feedback between Wed and Sat, with an individual video critique with Felicia on Sunday. This can include live demonstrations, corrections, and advice. An alternative time may be available if Sundays aren’t possible. No critiques on Easter Sunday; another day will be arranged.
