Class Experience

If your tween or teen loves to paint, this is the perfect class! The class focuses primarily on painting with acrylics. Children draw what they paint so prior knowledge of drawing is helpful.

This class guides students through easy-to-follow lessons in the fundementals of acrylic painting, a flexible and colorful painting medium. Students draw what they paint so this class has the advantage of teaching both drawing and painting. Prior knowledge of drawing is helpful but not mandatory.

We explore color concepts and strategies such as a complimentary and/or triadic color schemes. The class offers instruction in color concepts, and drawing and painting principles that help children to learn and enhance their art skills. Children learn by following the teacher in guided instruction. For the Fall session, we are offering 13 classes from early September to late December.

Notes

YMAC Online Classes are held via Zoom video conferencing. The Zoom link and Password are emailed automatically around 30 minutes before the start of class. The class instructor will send out the 'art lesson' attachment the day of class. Please be sure to check your email and look for Young Masters Art Center as the sender. Please print the art lesson attachment in color. Students should attend class on a hard surface such as a table or desk with good room lighting. It's not advisable to take the class on the bed or floor. It's also best for students to attend class in a quiet house location that is not around the rest of the family with brothers and sisters. This will minimize interruptions for the student as well as the class and ensure good focus and attention.

About Young Masters Art Center

Young Masters Art Center offers exceptional drawing and painting classes for children ages 4 - 16. We also offer drawing and painting classes for adults. Our classes are offered according to the age of the student (4-6, 7-10 and 11-16). Our lesson plans are also developed according to the student's age and skill level.

Young Masters Art Center was founded in 2016 from a vision that children can become young artists and flourish in fine arts when given the right environment and instruction. We wanted to share the gift of art by providing an exceptional teaching experience for the next generation of young artists.

YMAC creates a classroom environment where children can receive instruction in fine arts drawing and painting through individualized attention and exceptional instruction. We share a vision and joy for art as well as a love for children.

Our instructors are professional artists recognized throughout the industry with years of fine arts teaching experience for children and adults. We teach a realistic art curriculum with the structure necessary for achieving highly skilled drawing and painting success while also allowing the freedom for individual creativity. The YMAC business model is small classes with lots of individualized attention for the children. We offer interactive online classes as well as in person classes. In 2020, our in person classes have been suspended due to the COVID threat. We hope to offer them again at some point in 2021.
