4 Weeks | Kids and Teens Art Short Course

 

The 4 week-long Kids and Teens Art Short Course is suitable for art students that need to learn or practice both drawing and painting skills. The art lessons revolve around some of the most fundamental drawing techniques, followed by watercolours.

We recommend that children and teens that have not practiced painting before start with watercolours before approaching acrylic or other media. This is because it is usually easier and quicker to grasp the necessary basic painting techniques that will be useful when approaching other media.
