After School Art

Students and parents agree this unparalleled program is the perfect blend of creative fun and fine arts education!

Awaken your child’s imagination and creativity in our Young Vincents after school program! Your child will gain both confidence and an understanding of the visual arts while building painting, drawing and mixed-media skills. Weekly classes are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the school year. Sessions are challenging and exciting for ages 6-12, including teen classes.

 

Through guided, hands-on art projects, students develop an eye for color, composition and design. While mastering the fundamentals, they also learn lifelong habits regarding technique, material use and art appreciation. Throughout the year, we explore a variety of artistic realms, such as still life, animals, people, landscapes, and abstract concepts. Young Vincents take home an amazing portfolio of completed artwork which they are proud to sign, display, and share.
