Art Workshops

LEARNING THROUGH EXPRESSION!

TEAM BUILDING Academy of Art workshops are designed to introduce and use the visual arts as an enrichment program in a group setting. Offer team building by using the visual arts as a tool to enhance creative learning and communication. We intend for anyone to create ---no artistic ability required.
Below are some brief descriptions of our existing workshops.

Community Masterpiece
Description: A team building workshop for your staff to create a masterpiece for display at your facility. Learn about famous artists, art eras and cultures while using a variety of media. Focus on technique and/or subject matter to re-create an inspired theme of all 'artists' involved.
Art Exploration
Description: Learn to use a variety of art media and re-create visual images. Incorporate elements of design in the drawing and creating process. Create up to 4 projects based upon different cultures and famous artists.

Watercolor
Description: Learn new techniques to create fun abstract and realistic subject matter. If you never used watercolors before or you are a watercolor hobbyist this class is for you. Create fresh new paintings and be inspired by other artists.

EDUCATORS Academy of Art workshops create a custom program to address your specific needs. Learn the basic components of visual arts while incorporating standard core academics such as math (numeric sequencing), science (experimenting & hypothesis) and language arts (verbal/oral comprehension). State standards require kindergarten through fifth-grade students to know the elements of design. Academy of Art workshops teach the elements and principles of design along with teaching various art terms, techniques and skills while using professional art media. Our workshops also aide teachers by giving basic guide lines in introducing art history and art appreciation.
