Children / Youth Fine Arts Program (ages 8-16)

September 2023 to June 2024

Semi-private tutoring within a small class environment.
Classes are combined ages, however, lessons are taught appropriate to students age, ability and comprehension.

Art classes are structured as a fine art program to facilitate students in developing their drawing and painting skills, thereby giving students the visual language to confidently express their own artistic voice.

As students progress, it is expected students will need several classes to complete a project. One on one teacher-student interaction fosters each student’s confidence in their own unique abilities without judgement of comparing themselves to others. When a student’s confidence in their skills grow, their desire to expand their ideas and ability to create and express their own unique creative voice grows naturally. This enhanced learning contibutes to accelerated growth in skills and accomplishments.

What Students Will Be Learning

Students will learn from a variety of subjects:
Still life, landscape, seascapes, animals, figure and ( portriature/ see below ). Students will expand their artistic knowledge by experimenting with various styles and techniques of drawing and painting, while learning about the work of other artists past and present.

Portrait instruction only taught with non toxic blendable mediums / graphite, charcoals, chalk pastels.


Lessons are broken down into basics, beginning with the building blocks of drawing, based on each student's age and skill level. Students will receive extensive instruction around various drawing techniques, to help them develop their perception of line, shape, perspective, and shading with light and shade to create three-dimensional forms. 


A strong drawing base provides the basis for students to develop confident painting skills through the understanding of color theory, color mixing, elements of design, and composition. The painting mediums students will be working with are non toxic dry and water-based media only. Graphite, oil and chalk pastels, coloured pencils, water soluble pencils, water soluable pastels, gouache, ink, watercolours and acrylics.

Please note: Program is not designed for students looking to create through experimental play art and may not be appropriate for children with special needs and some LD


How to Enroll

The Studio offers semi private Fine Art Programs all year for students ages 8 - 16 yrs.

We are pleased to announce that due to the increased number of students on our yearly art class wait list, we have added more classes for yearly enrollment.

To have an opportunity for on-going yearly enrollment :

We have decided to offer our on-going 5 week trials for students beginning in September 2023, based on the very limited availability of spaces. The 5 week trials will continue till December 1 2023. After the 5 week trial is over and the student and instructor feel that the program is a good fit, then the student will be offered yearly enrollment beginning immediately after the 5 week trial ends. The yearly term will continue till end of program year June 2024. Beginning September 2024 to June of 2025, the yearly program will begin again and the student is automatically enrolled if student and instructor agree.

The purpose of the 5 week trial is to determine if the program is a good fit for the student and the instructor, in order for the student to proceed with enrollment in our yearly program. 

Enrollment fee for the 5 week trial program is $ 299
