See the World Through an Artist’s Eyes

School of ART - Where Critical Thinking Meets Creative Expression

 

We believe that everyone has something to gain from learning and practicing art. Our school is designed to teach all ages a variety of mediums. We teach everything from basic drawing and painting through full interactive animation and robotics. Here at School of Art, students are taught to see the world through artist’s eyes. This guidance has immediate results for students as they translate weight, force and story into their drawings, paintings, and sculpture.

 

 

Classes Designed to teach all ages a variety of mediums

Everything from basic drawing and painting through full interactive animation and robotics

At School of ART we present direct instruction in the technical skills required for success with many different mediums in a fun and exciting way.  Our mediated teaching style encourages creative thought and develops critical thinking.  Unlike art programs that “follow steps” that lead to similar pieces of artwork, our instructors provide an understanding of artistic technique and principles. Therefore, at School of ART students are able to bridge technical knowledge with their own unique ideas to create dynamic and individual pieces.

Painting

Create a basis for creative growth and expression with an emphasis on painting techniques, color mixing, & composition.

ACADEMIC BENEFITS OF STUDYING WITH SCHOOL OF ART

School of ART - Where Critical Thinking Meets Creative Expression

STUDYING ART DEVELOPS A STRONG WORK ETHIC:

School of ART students experience the personal satisfaction of a job well done. Each completed project is the tangible evidence of the effort devoted to it.

STUDYING ART ENHANCES VISUAL LEARNING:

The study and creation of visual images develops keen observational skills. These skills express themselves in academics as more efficient proof reading and improved spacial awareness. 

STUDYING ART PROMOTES BETTER STUDY SKILLS

Knowing what to do and when to do it are two skills directly related to academic success. The projects our students create give them opportunity to exercise these skills. School of ART instructors mediate students to develop design and planning strategies that result in successful individual creative expression.
