These online classes are for children ages 10 and up. All levels welcome! Students sign up for either drawing or painting. The teacher will present to the class options of imagery to work from, and together the class will discuss shapes, lines, proportions, values, hues, and other concepts to be considered for the artwork. Each week’s goal is to finish an entire drawing or painting.
