Learning to Paint – Introductory Methods

The Basics

The children’s painting class curriculum begins with introductory lessons in art. Students learn the basic drawing principles for painting with oil, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media.


Student’s will learn about various styles, from traditional to abstract. Within this, techniques of color, mixing, blending, and paint application are learned so that they can be integrated into the differing styles.

This is an exciting process that often early identifies which direction inspires your child the most.


Student’s learn about concepts regarding painting with perspective, proportion, positive and negative space, rendering of textures, volumes, and compositional structure. From this, and the above mentioned processes, students will acquire a visual vocabulary for painting.
