Program Overview:


facediagramCanvas & Clay’s Fine Art drawing, painting & clay programs teach students ages 4-adult the fundamentals of art through the exploration of various media in a creative and inspiring studio environment. Using a step-by-step teaching method that breaks each drawing into basic shapes, our students learn to “see” the world in a new way.

Students experience a wide breadth of subject matter such as still life, portraiture, cartooning, anime, figure drawing, and landscape. Through individualized programming and one-on-one instruction, students are able to learn at their own pace while gaining technical knowledge and confidence in their work.

Students explore a wide array of media in our drawing program, such as pastels, colored pencils, and markers. Once proficient in their drawing skills, each student progresses into the painting program, working their way through watercolor, then acrylic, and finally oil. Students receive extensive hands-on instruction in the use of each medium, including color-mixing, painting techniques, and the proper use and care of materials.

Weekly classes are available as well as single day workshops, summer camps, and birthday parties.

To learn more about our studio firsthand, please schedule a Free Trial Class, during which your child will have the opportunity to draw, ink, and color a complete picture. We look forward to meeting you!
