The Masters in the Morning program is both educational and FUN! Each week we start with a presentation of the artist of the week, followed by an art project inspired by this artist or technique. We use a variety of media from printmaking, painting, drawing, collage, sculpting, and fiber. In the Masters in the Morning program, students will develop an artful eye and learn new skills and vocabulary that will help them better express themselves. Instructors encourage creativity, perseverance, and confidence. We value the process of making art rather than focusing on the end product, however, our students are producing some pretty amazing pieces of art! We use only quality materials, and the classes are taught by professional artists and experienced teachers!
