About our Programs

Our Advanced Classes for students ages 10-19 are designed to push their creative limits. In these Sessional classes, students continue to develop their skills in drawing, painting, sketching, and clay sculpture.

All Advanced Classes are specifically for students that already have a foundation in the elements of art and design. Expanding upon that foundation, these classes offer a deep dive into art-making, with a focus on developing an art practice, mentorship, critique, and discussion.
