Introducing a fantastic new class


The Art Year is a multiple trimester program designed as a transition class for INTERMEDIATE level students (A2 or higher) who have a committed interest in art and wish to continue developing their skills. It is designed to move students away from the exercise projects presented in our foundation drawing classes and begin challenging them to function more as independent, self-determined artists. It will also introduce a more detailed studies of materials, more advanced techniques, and conceptual thinking and problem solving. Most importantly, students in this level will be guided toward artistic independence, in which they are encouraged to try new ideas, materials and processes. Nearly all projects will be multi-week with an emphasis on completing the artwork.

PLEASE NOTE: The Art Year requires a full three trimester commitment. Students are expected to begin in the Fall trimester and remain in class for the Winter and Spring trimesters. Students may NOT take single trimesters.
