Exploring the Creative Process (LOOKING, THINKING, and DOING), students will be trained as VISUAL COMMUNICATORS with guidance and direction from Design Street’s professional Artist Instructors and Trained Art Educators. Students will develop confidence in drawing and painting through a variety of techniques and methods. Inspiration from Art History, Literature, Nature, and Culture will motivate students to develop their own conceptual “Narratives” through a series of illustrative responses to Design Challenges.

Many students contemplate a career in the arts but are not aware of the numerous vocations which require creative minds and artistic applications. Instructors Rachel Hopkins and Lacey Schmitt will work with individual needs of students to develop artistic strengths in concept/composition, technique, critique, and portfolio development.

DRAWING and PAINTING will be the primary focus as students create a series of projects to prepare their portfolios for college applications, scholarships competitions, job interviews, and personal development. Students will participate in class CRITIQUES throughout each project, to develop skills in communication and working in collaborative environments. Contact PRIOR to enrollment, to ensure this is the right fit for your student.

Materials are provided but students may choose to bring in additional supplies from home if desired. Certain projects may require additional work time outside of class. Students should be prepared to continue to work on projects at home if needed and provide their own supplies for use at home such as brushes, mediums, etc.
