Art Seekers (Youth 1), Ages 8 – 12

This studio program is offered to children who have had previous art making exposure and will emphasize drawing and painting skill development, knowledge of composition, principles of design, and the use of professional artist materials. The aim of this special program is to stimulate creativity and foster a love of art.
