“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”

~Vincent Van Gogh

We offer age-appropriate visual arts combo classes each year for kids and teens, as well as once a month art seminar classes for teens and adults. All of our classes are taught by professional artists.

Our art combo classes incorporate a variety of mediums, techniques and projects that are all aimed at equipping the students with the visual insight, technical skills, and creative confidence needed to be more effective visual communicators in this highly visual age. Each class also incorporates an element of art history and art appreciation to help our students understand and appreciate the work of contemporary & past artists.

Our Full Year (fall 2018- spring 2019) classes will run for 32 weeks from September 8th to May 7th, while our Fall Semester will run for 15 weeks from September 8th to December 18th and our Winter/Spring Semester will run for 17 weeks from January 5th to May 7th. All of our classes will be held at Westview Baptist Church.

Saturday classes will begin September 8th and Tuesday classes will begin on September 11th. All classes will conclude on May 7th for our Year-End Showcase. There will be no classes from December 19th to January 4th due to Christmas Break. There will be no classes from March 24th to April 1st for Spring Break. There will also be no Saturday classes on April 20th for Easter weekend.

There will be opportunities for parents to observe student progress at various times throughout the year through the invitation of individual instructors, and/or during our year-end showcase on May 7th.
