Welcome to Canvas & Clay! We teach realistic fine art drawing, painting, and clay to students ages four through adult. We also offer summer camps, seasonal camps (on most school holidays!), and birthday parties.
Students in our weekly art classes work one-on-one with teachers on wide variety of subjects such as cartooning, landscape, figure drawing, and still life. Each child works at their own pace on pictures that they choose themselves, so that they are excited and supported every step of the way. Our step-by-step drawing methods teach students to “see” what they are drawing in a new way, as they learn to break each drawing down into it’s most basic shapes.
Beginning in colored pencil, marker, and chalk pastel, students progress through the dry media in our drawing program, and then graduate into painting once they have mastered their basic skills. Our painting program begins with watercolor, and progresses to acrylic, and finally oil.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
