Kids Private Art Lessons in Truro
Foster your child’s creativity, whilst they learn new skills, gain confidence, develop problem solving abilities, patience and determination.
We practice many different painting techniques, learning about colour theory, texture, composition, techniques and idea generation. Exploring brush stokes and mixing colours to create an image inspired by our imagination or the world around us. Other techniques taught include printmaking, sculpture, and textiles. Most importantly we have fun learning these new skills!
Each child works at their own pace in a small group setting and is encouraged to develop their individual style. Classes are kept small to around 3 students as I find they blossom with the personalized attention.
Weekly class times : Monday - Thursday: 2.30 - 3.30; 4.00-5.00; and 5.30-6.30 $25 per hourly lesson ($100 per month)
We start with painting a colour wheel so that we can understand how to mix colours, and how colours work in a painting (colour theory). This takes one class. Then we move on to paint a favourite animal (or pet) learning how to upscale an image onto a canvas and we refer to the painting style of Vincent Van Gogh who had quite an energetic brush stroke.
Children also are encouraged to participate in local exhibitions. We have displayed our paintings at the NSCC library as part of the Generations exhibition curated by the Truro Art Society in 2018 and we participated in the Marigold and Mingo Music community fundraiser 'Artists in Harmony' where old instruments we painted and sold at auction. All proceeds went to towards community organizations.
