"Every child is an artist, the trick is how to remain one once we grow up."
Art Classes with Melanie Therrien
Fine art lessons focus on the needs of each individual student. The first class consists of an introduction and drawing exercises. The goal of the lessons is to introduce students to various media, techniques and styles of art through individual projects, group projects, demonstrations and drawing from life. Students can experiment with the media of acrylic, watercolor, ink, scratch board, pencil, oil pastel, charcoal and more.
Class size is 8-10.
Snacks and drinks are allowed.
