Art Classes

ArtStuff

Did you know that learning to draw not only gives you the ability to put down images on paper or canvas, but that it also develops and improves your decision making processes?  Learning to draw, training your hand and your eye to work together, and teaching yourself to really see – are excellent for helping you to learn judgement, weighing the options, and decision-making skills.

If you’ve taken a drawing class in the past and fell away from it, maybe you should consider giving it another try.  Every teacher has a different style and technique.  If you’ve never taken a drawing class before, this would be a great time to give it a whirl.  Do something for yourself; something that will make you a better thinker and take you on great adventures as you lose yourself in the work.

Art classes (daytime or evening) are now available on either an individual basis or in a classroom format.
