This Program is designed for Art students who have demonstrated skills, focus, and maturity beyond a Beginner level. Our students are typically, but not always, in their upper-middle or high school years. Some are interested in developing, building, or expanding their portfolio, perhaps for application into schools of Art or Design. Others come to the course with an eye towards working with other students with a similar focus, interest, or skill level in Art.
Topics such as composition, perspective, and dimension are addressed at a degree much deeper than can be found in a Beginner level. Intermediate and Advanced Students are rotated through a variety of specific lessons in content areas such as: Academic Drawing, Painting with Acrylics, Watercolors, Oil Pastels, Printmaking, Clay Sculpture, Wood Assemblage Sculpture, Hand-Built Pottery, and more. Other topics may be taught depending on student interest or special request.
Small class sizes ensure personal attention from the Art Teacher and focus on supporting individual skill and knowledge building.
Each session throughout the academic year has a different theme, so students will have fresh experiences and build upon their skills each time they enroll.
Student Artworks will be selected and on display for Studio Exhibitions throughout the academic year. Browse through our online Gallery to see examples of completed works and works in progress.
Enrollment in classes for Intermediate and Advanced Students is by invitation/permission of the Art Teacher. New students may apply by contacting Art@MonroeStreetStudio.com, being sure to include photographic samples of recent work.
