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 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.
Students enrolled in Art Foundations are guided to build upon their raw expressive potential and develop painting, drawing, sculpting and mixed-media technique.
Portfolio Prep students will create one-of-a-kind portfolios that are founded in a strong technical use of visual media and highlight each student’s unique character. Instruction focuses on building a solid technical foundation and engaging in conceptual development.
