From acrylic to watercolor, from inks to oil pastels and more, this class will explore color, composition and other techniques through still-life and photographic inspirations.  As the class progresses, the student will continue to build knowledge and expand upon fundamental techniques, such as shading, coloring mixing and more.  All your child needs is a smock and an imagination and the paintbrush will do the rest! All paint lovers are welcome.

Drawing and Painting curriculum covers 4 years for this age group.  While projects in this curriculum are rarely repeated, Ms Truk rotates the focus through the years so that your child builds a sold foundation of painting techniques.

About the Teaching Artist: Katie Truk received her BFA from Alfred University.
