Instructor: Robin Lane

Middle and high school students develop and expand their drawing and painting skills, find new challenges, and discover new avenues for inspiration. Individualized instruction, demonstrations, and exploration in a variety of drawing, and painting are at the core of the Aspiring Artists workshop environment where students work through projects at their own pace. They will learn from observation, photographs, and their imaginations. Students will work with pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastels, acrylic paint on canvas, and watercolors in this class. This art class will foster self-expression and the development of a personal style in a welcoming, inclusive, and stimulating arts classroom environment. Please bring a cell phone or a tablet if you have one. Student artwork is exhibited in the Rising Artists Education Gallery exhibition in March. Projects do not repeat, and many students enjoy taking this class in the fall, winter, and spring for consecutive years.

Projects are not repeated throughout the year. Most students attend for consecutive seasons, and many attend for several years.
