Classes For Children

Here we are, hard at it...

Not only creating our projects

But keeping up with the latest headline developments of our friends and colleagues.

Each child is shown, not only told, how to develop sketching techniques that help coordinate the eye and hand. This allows the student to gain a sense of accurate perspective, shadowing and dimension.

After the basics, every child works on something different.
Having the student work in their area of greatest interest helps them stick with the project: preparing it for framing.

Students work in colored pencils, ink, charcoal, watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oils. Kids learn about marker rendering, logo generation and the keys to designing anything from a business card to a web page.

All students produce finished pieces that usually find a place in their house, parent's office or school. There's no better time than NOW to begin laying the foundation for a great portfolio.

Jane pulls from her extensive graphics and fine art background to Mentor these kids, enabling them to accomplish whatever they desire to produce artistically.

This training compliments that of other art classes in schools and gives each student an artist's perspective when working with computer graphics and design.

Each student will get one-on-one time with Jane at each lesson to refine their work, being shown from someone who has done it professionally.

Each year, many students who enter their art into competitions, win various awards. There's never been a year that students do not fail to win a blue ribbon from the Dixie Classic Fair.

Several high school students have been awarded prizes at various North Carolina State Art Contests.

Never a dull moment, we actually have fun learning.

Students absorb alot by seeing their classmates' work tweaked.

The classes move quickly.
