Young at Art classes

Ian and Cole enjoyed taking some art classes at Young at Art. It is a great studio and we hope to take some more classes there either this summer or in the fall. We like to do art at home, but it is also nice to have a professional teach the children from their artistic perspective. We have enjoyed trying different art approaches. During these classes, they boys used oil pastels to create their art. First, they chose their subject matter (fruit/vegetable, stuffed animal, etc.) Next, the teacher showed them the techniques and how to create the art piece. Next, the children copied and made their own drawing. The teachers were available for questions and helped guide the children's progress and correct misapplications. My boys enjoyed the classes and brought home some beautiful art pieces.
