“Abstract Painting and Drawing” will be the class for ages 6–10 students. The Instructor will lead the students through the drawing process of abstract art. Whether lines or dabs of colorful paint, students will create their own abstract masterpiece.

Student ages 11–15 will attend the afternoon class, where they will work with acrylic paints to first draw and then paint their perfect beach. Using “beachy” colors and ideas from family travels, their beach will be created.
