Kids Oil Painting with instructor Johanna "Miss Jo" Girard
Yes! Kids CAN do oil painting! Instructor Johanna Girard (BFA, Art Center College of Design) has over 20 years experience teaching beginning students as young as age 6 up to adults! No prior drawing experience is necessary for this class.
Your child will learn all the basic drawing skills and how to apply them to build a solid foundation for creating paintings. Kids will learn color theory, color mixing, blending and layering techniques. As students gain more confidence in handling paint, they are encouraged to design and create their own unique imaginative compositions, and are free to explore different artistic styles.
Small class sizes allow the lessons to be customized to your child's interests and artistic goals.
Parents are welcome to join the fun and learn to paint with your kids too, provided their is space in the class.
