Art Fundamentals for Grades K-2

They are curious and self-confident, open to new ideas, and certain about what they like. They are what many adult artists dream to be.


We find it very important to know that Art is not about just following step-by-step instructions. We teach kids to create something brand new, using the endless resource of their imagination. All they need is encouragement and advice, which we are always happy to provide.

Each lesson covers an important art concept, needed for fluent representational drawing and painting. It is combined with a short 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 skill levels.


We start a lesson with a short lecture and demonstration. 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. Art materials we master: acrylics, watercolor, pastels, pencil, markers, clay.​

Our curriculum covers all major art concepts, such as drawing humans, animals, portraits, landscapes; working with watercolor, acrylics, pastels, pencils, and clay. 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 teacher's custom guidance and feedback.
