Kids’ Classes

 Visual Academy for Middle School-aged Students

Thursdays, 3:45 – 5:15 p.m.

Looking  for something to sharpen your artistic skills and spend more time exploring the right side of your brain (the creative side)?  Join us at HAL for some STEAM-friendly classes on Thursdays after school. You’ll delve into basic art principles such as color, composition, proportions, shading, and others whilst exploring your artistic freedom in terms of subject matter and theme. We’ll paint, draw, sculpt and create using recycled  materials, introducing you to new mediums while you build your confidence and artist know-how.   Open to Home  School as well as traditional students, our class sizes are limited but the possibilities to build your own body of work is not.
