Children's Classes

Skill Building Drawing Program with Liam Vogel

This semi private drawing program is intended to help students develop and improve their drawing ability, no matter what skill level they currently have. Students will be given different traditional drawing exercises depending on their skill level and artistic interests. The instructor will work with each student one on one, in a semi private format, to determine the best possible course of development. Classes will end with a discussion of that days assignments, followed by a critique of  the work that was accomplished. Students may bring outside assignments if they require assistance with a particular drawing that they hope to complete. All materials for in class assignments will be supplied by the instructor, but students are encouraged to get a sketchbook for working outside of class. The instructor will provide each student with optional sketchbook assignments for drawing exercises, which is considered an essential practice for any developing artists. Due to the class being offered in a semi private format, class size is very limited, so students must pre register in advance.

Painting Skill Building Program with Liam Vogel

The skill building painting program is intended to give students of all ages and experience levels a more in depth understanding of different painting techniques. Students will learn the importance of color, composition, and value, and how each particular painting medium handles these elements. Students will alternate between working from still life setups, and working from photographic reference to produce completed drawings, which we will critique as a group, in an attempt to discover the strengths/weaknesses of each student individually! Basic student level materials will be supplied, but students are encouraged to bring specific materials if they have them. Advanced Students may bring their own project or idea, and the instructor can assist the student with completing the project. Every Month the skill building painting program will cycle through a new painting discipline. Each month will have a particular medium and style associated with it.
