This course is teaching all important art fundamentals and all common art materials to kids of various levels. If your child wants to draw, paint and sculpt realistically from real life and imagination, it is the right choice. For drawing in cartoon style, check

Sketching for Kids.  

Each lesson covers an important art concept, needed for fluent representational drawing and painting. It is combined with an 2-3 minute intro to a cultural phenomenon: a style, and epoch, or a single artist. Students get to create their original artworks from scratch within the guidelines of the topic. Each topic can be adjusted to a variety of levels, from beginners to advanced.

We start a lesson with a short lecture and demonstration (live in studios, pre-recorded for online lessons). Teachers provide advice, help, correct the digital image of a student's work, explain what works in particular cases and what does not, and why.

This class is ongoing, students can join anytime. Important concepts like drawing humans and animals, nature, and architecture are repeated every 1-2 months, each time associated with a new topic and art material. Topic rotation is 2-3 years. Art materials we master: acrylics, watercolor, pastels, pencil, markers, clay.

Sample instructional video:

Some of our instructional videos can be found on our youtube channel, available for public use. However, we believe that comprehensive artistic development is impossible without teachers' custom guidance and feedback.
