The foundation of all art is drawing. If you have never drawn before or have a little experience, this class is for you. One of the main focuses will be on training the eye how to see.

Time allowing, we will work on a class project that will be displayed at the ArtCenter.
Papier Mâché, French for “chewed paper,” is an inexpensive, fun way to create a variety of sculptures. From bowls to balloons from creatures to art, you can make it with Paper Mâché. We’ll start with a form, add glue and paper, then color to create a piece of paper art.
