What people are saying about this class:

Students:

"My instructor (Grace) is a great encourager!  She has great ideas and comes up with very interesting subjects to paint."

"I’ve learned a ton of new techniques to add to my art.

"She’s a lot of fun and is very patient. She’ll wait with you at the end of class if you haven’t finished the project."


Parents:
"Grace Wolfe, and the instruction she's provided, have been a sweet spot for our daughter these last two years. We love how accessible you've made excellent art instruction and the heart behind your work! "

"The instructors are super encouraging and do a great job of building value in each student’s contributions to the study of “art.”  Neither of my children are natural artists, but they sure do feel more accomplished by the end of each class. The confidence boost is an added bonus. The girls are learning useful foundational skills that can be and are being applied to areas outside of class. The parent communication and class organization of each instructor is clear and easy to follow. The reading pace and selection of the books pair nicely with the Foundations cycle. We’ll be back again next year!

(Previously titled Paint Your Way to Sea and Sky)

Is your student interested in learning more about painting with acrylics? Do they love the ocean, sky, and stars? This class would be the perfect fit for them! 

 

Each lesson begins with science facts pulled from Apologia Science books and finishes with the students painting what we learned about. They will learn about color mixing and theory, using brushes and other tools, blending, and composition. This will set your child up well for more advanced painting classes. This class builds upon it’s self, methodically taking your student through sceience and nature as the projects become more advance. 

 

This school-year-long class is broken up into 3 sections: 

 

In the meteorology section, students will learn the names of different types of clouds and learn to paint them. They'll also learn about and paint tornadoes and storms!

In astronomy, students will learn how to paint the night sky, including meteors, constellations, the milky way, and planets!

In the marine biology section, students will learn about different sea creatures, the continental shelf, sea shells, and more! They will learn to paint in detail and presision through  this section. 

 

Join us as we learn about this beautiful world and paint with brilliant colors- sure to make each class an exciting learning experience!

 

Note: It is recommended to have previous art experience before taking this class. See the class list for ideal beginner drawing classes to set your student up well for higher-level classes.
