Children / Youth Yearly Art Program (ages 8-19)

Semi-private tutoring (4-5 students per class).
Classes are combined ages, however, lessons are taught appropriate to the age, ability and comprehension of each student.

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.

Under the guidance of the instructor, students work on their own chosen project, at a level and experience comfortable for them.

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
grows, their desire to expand their ideas and ability to create and express their own unique creative voice grows naturally.

What Students Will Be Learning

Students may choose from a variety of subjects:
Still life, landscape, seascapes, the human figure, portraiture and animals. Students will expand their artistic knowledge by experimenting with various styles and techniques of drawing and painting and by learning about the work of other artists past and present.


Lessons are broken down into basics, according to each student’s artistic level of skill and comprehension thus inspiring confidence in understanding form and placement of what they see.

This is taught through various drawing techniques, and extensive instruction in helping students to develop their perception of line, shape, perspective, and shading with light and shade to create three-dimensional form.


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.
Painting mediums students will be working with are dry and water-based media only. Oil and chalk pastels, coloured pencils, water soluble pencils, water soluble 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.
