Working on both canvas and high quality watercolor paper as well as other interesting media, this class will support and encourage each student's individual process while advancing their skills among a community of artists. Learn acrylic techniques such as color mixing, layering, and working with gel mediums, as well as watercolor techniques including washes, dry brush, and creating texture with reactions using alcohol, salt, and more. Class culminates in an independent piece of each student's choice.

Teen Draw

  • Ages 14-17
  • Tuesdays
  • 5 - 6:15pm
  • 4/3 - 5/22
  • $210 + $18 materials fee

This class is all about how to use the many drawing materials and techniques available to create your own unique drawings. We will be working with materials such as graphite, charcoal, and pastel to gain a well rounded understanding of how each media can be used to create the artwork you want to create. At first creating works with each media individually, the class will lead up to an independent mixed media piece the students will create using their new found mastery of these drawing materials.

Also register for Tuesday's Open Teen Studio option for a full afternoon of studio time at Tinker!
