Art Steps Classes
At Art Steps, Students work step-by-step on a wide variety of subject matter such as animals, landscape, still-life, figure drawing and more, in media including pastel, color pencil, markers, graphite, charcoal, watercolor, acrylic and oil. Classes are relaxed and respectful, where students enjoy focusing on the quiet activity of learning to see, and inspirational teachers challenge each student to work toward his her individual, artistic potential. An individualized curriculum helps us work toward each student’s interests and preferences, so that each class is lively and engaging. Just as a person learns to read and write before becoming an author, our philosophy is that “creativity follows mastery”. With the student and teacher working together, hands-on skills are built one upon another, until that student becomes a highly skilled oil painter, and can use the skills learned as a foundation to go in any artistic direction he or she chooses.
