Which Art Class is Right for Me?
Once you know which class you'd like to take, you can use the skill level guide below to navigate the flowchart at the bottom of the page!
Art Foundations (Level 1: Beginner)
Age 6+ | 1 hour lessons
Designed for beginners, Level 1 classes introduce basic techniques in drawing, painting or digital art with live demonstrations. Students are encouraged to follow the teacher step by step for the majority of projects, but there is always room for flair and customization! Most projects are completed in a single class.
Note for Parents:
Younger students may require parental assistance to set up a workstation and upload artwork for feedback. Virtual classes work best with a webcam as younger children require more interaction and assistance from the teacher.
Art Foundations (Level 2: Intermediate)
Age 9+ | 1.5 hour classes
Level 2 classes blend step by step learning with theme-based projects to nurture imagination and design innovation. Intermediate students have more creative license because they are more familiar with fundamentals and have prior art experience.
For the best experience, we recommend using a webcam and mic so the instructor can provide live feedback. Students may also choose to participate using the live chat and upload their artwork to get individual feedback through Google Classrooms.
Art Foundations (Level 3: Advanced)
Age 12+ | 1.5 hour classes
Projects in Level 3 classes are longer and designed to be more challenging. Lessons focus on advanced techniques and concepts such as 3D form, foreshortening and perspective, realistic shading, colour theory and style exploration. Projects allow for students to express their individuality and interests.
Age 13+ | 1.5 - 2 hour group classes, or private lessons by appointment
Art Mentorship is a specialized program for those looking to master certain skills or build an art portfolio for university. Lessons focus on critiques, discussion, industry advice and guidance on personal creative challenges. Custom projects are assigned based on individual goals or common interests of each group.
