We believe that every student, young or old, should start with learning the foundations of visual art as a way to uncover his or her unique artistic style.


Classes at the studio focus on the foundations of art as well as emphasize the autotomy, creativity, and self-expressive identities of the artist.

Each class offered at OpenArt Studio (Expressionists, Art Foundations, Portfolio Prep, and Adult Visual Arts), will have a basis on this philosophy. What is taught to the students will depend on which class he or she is placed under upon registration.

Expressionists (Age 5-10)

Expressionists classes are focused on fostering creativity and encouraging each student to explore their expressive potential. Expressionist classes are split into ages 5-7 and 8-10 and introduce to a wide variety of media, techniques and artists.
