What are they going to paint?

Short answer: Whatever they want.

Long answer:
Our instructors emphasize the role and power of an artist.  We will TEACH art skills such as color mixing, applying paint, washing the brush, etc.  We will discuss subject matters, design decisions, and final composition.  We will use art vocabulary like foreground and background and focal point. 

We will NOT do a step-by-step guided painting. 

BUT, Why?
Well, to be honest, it's a personal belief.  We believe that it's not the BEST way to teach art to young artists.  



And we want what is BEST for them.  

A step-by-step painting may yield "better" paintings.  That's true.  But, our objective is not the finished product.  Our objective is the value of the PROCESS.   Our objective is the creation.  Our objective is the confidence-building.  We want to keep them as ARTISTS.  

Too many adults believe that they can't draw because they spent their childhood making "ART" that was supposed to look like a teacher's example!  We're going to change that with this generation!   With every opportunity that we can.  No teacher examples.  Just ideas.  Just inspiration.  Just support. 
There is a time and a place for step-by-step instruction.  We use step-by-steps in painting studies or exercises.  But not in final art.
