Painting

In our painting courses we will be exploring color theory, techniques, mediums, and styles. This course will include both representational and abstract painting projects using a variety of materials. Through the use of paint, observation, and art history, students will gain a better understanding even before approaching their canvases. This course will be a unique opportunity for our young artists to strengthen their painting skills, as well as enhance the way they observe the world God has given us to explore. All supplies are included.

Through the use of unique materials, color palettes, textures, and patterns the students will gain knowledge and experience in transforming the human bodies into a beautiful work of art.
