Columbus Music and Art Academy offers high-quality drawing and painting classes for children ages 4-18 from Columbus, Dublin, Powell and other central Ohio communities. The art classes help children develop:
- Problem solving skills
- Fine motor skills
- Cultural and historical awareness
- Art appreciation
- Ability to make aesthetic judgments
- Strong drawing and painting skills
- And much more...
During art lessons children learn correct drawing and painting techniques, line movement, shading, proportions, composition, and color concepts. Each child gets personal attention from the art instructor.
4-6 and 5-7 years
Students in these classes learn how to draw and paint by using basic shapes to build their artwork. Projects include inspiration from different artists, nature, and design. Step by step lessons ensure that your child creates a successful piece of artwork while learning basic art techniques.
7-10, 8-11, and 9-12 years
Using painting and drawing, students in these classes will refine their skills and have much opportunity to make their own artistic decisions. Students will be given more opportunity to talk about their artwork and the artwork of peers and professionals.
This class is the most advanced and allows students to develop their own project from a given example. Oil painting, perspective drawing, portraiture, and design are taught in this class. Students receive one on one instruction to enhance their developing artistic skills.
At the end of the school year art students submit their artworks to the Annual Art Exhibition that is traditionally held in May.
