FRIDAY ENRICHMENT ART CLASSES
About Our Program
The Fine Arts Department is based on professional and high quality training to encourage every artist in their own creativity. We offer training in a variety mediums including drawing, painting, ceramics and other media. With qualified and experienced teachers, our goal is to develop the students’ creativity as we are equipping them with tools and understanding about the elements of visual art. This is done by examining great works of art, discussing the important elements in them, and applying those elements to the student’s own projects.
Our Friday Enrichment program offers a variety of arts & academic classes with professionals in their fields to supplement your homeschool curriculum. Classes at our Maryland Heights Location take place during the day on Fridays. Below are the fine art class offerings. Visit our Enrichment Friday page for more information on how to make a full day!
