Kids Paint Home School Art Program, Age 12 to 17,

 2022-2023 School Year

The Art Cellar of Houston offers our Home School Art Class every Tuesday from 1030A to 1230P, with breaks every 30-45 minutes (as needed).

This Home School Art Program is for children ages 12 to 17 seeking an in-depth art experience revolving around art history and various forms of art. Each class begins with a 15-20 minutes mini-art history lesson on an artist. We then provide students with step-by-step instructions to create their own masterpieces based on that artist's medium and/or technique.  Individuals will be working on a different medium each week. This link is to provide you the option to reserve each month we are in session for the 2022-2023 school year.  

 The following detail is a synopsis of the various mediums we provide over a 10-week session. The mediums are not done in any specific order. 
 
Acrylic Painting on Canvas
We will uncover the basics of sketch creating two drawings reflecting highlights and shading. The first part of the class will consist of four warm-up sketches inspiring the children to explore their creative juices. The second drawing will be wrapped around the artist we learn this week.  We will focus on highlighting and shading each drawing with pencils and charcoal.
Sketching Basics
We will teach the essentials of how to color with Pastels. This includes color blocking, layering, and using highlights to blend.
Pastels
Acrylic painting on canvas will explore the primary colors, blending to create secondary and tertiary colors, drawing with a paintbrush, and creating dimensions with colors.
Alcohol Inks on tiles
Alcohol inks are an acid-free, highly pigmented, and fast-drying medium to be used on non-porous surfaces.  We paint on ceramic tiles of various sizes, coffee cups, tea plates, and Yupo Paper, using cotton balls, Q-tips, and other household items to create our own unique designs.
Watercolor Basics
We will explore the color wash technique, and practice layering light, medium, and dark colors to create dimension.
Paint on Wood
We will learn how to paint on wood with acrylic paint, learn the differences between wood and canvas, and how the paint adheres to either surface. 
Acrylic Pour "The Science Experiment"
The acrylic pour class is what we call "The Science Experiment", combining acrylic paint, pouring medium, and liquids that evaporate once they blend with acrylic paint (H2O or Isopropyl Alcohol). Once they evaporate the results leave behind some pretty cool cells and creatures.  
Exploring Anime
We will review the basics of sketch creating two drawings reflecting highlights and shading. The first part of the class will consist of four warm-up sketches inspiring the children to explore their creative juices. The second drawing will be wrapped around the artist we learn this week.  We will focus on highlighting and shading each drawing with pencils and charcoal.

Gelli Printing
A lesson in block printing with layering, with multiple surfaces, and textures. 
3D Canvas Painting
Acrylic painting on canvas will explore the primary colors, blending to create secondary and tertiary colors, drawing with a paintbrush, and creating dimensions with colors.

Please bring snacks and beverages as this is not included in our price!  Art supplies and instructions will be provided to your child.
