Artopia - Tuesdays


with Dr. Priscilla Eichler

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 11, 2023 at 10:30 am, runs for 6 weeks

In this mixed media art class, children ages 5 – 9 will embark on techniques in drawing, painting, collage and sculpture.  This class encourages creativity in each student. Young artists will be encouraged to see the beauty in ever-changing nature, in objects around them, and in their own imaginations. 

Each month, each season unravels new opportunities for creation and imagination! For example, January is a chance to think about new beginnings! “In this new year, I will ___.  February is the month of love and we’ll look at who and what we love.  All of the thoughts of each month and holiday will be depicted through various media; colored pencil, acrylic paint, watercolor, sculpting in clay, montage, and collage.

The goal of instruction is for students to see the world around them with new eyes and to create what they see! Each young artist will be encouraged to be creative in the exploration of his/her skills, imaginings, and love of life!

Please note that we will not hold classes during Spring Break (March 13-17) as well as on April 7th.

Digital Drawing: Beginners/Intermediate - Tuesday


with Derris Dabbs

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 11, 2023 at 10:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

Are you ready to take your drawing style and experience to the next level? Students ages 10 and up will learn the basics of drawing digitally with the user-friendly app Procreate and an Apple Pencil. iPads and Apple Pencils are provided by the MACC, but you are welcome to bring your own.

This beginners class is a stepping stone to our intermediate and advanced digital classes. All digital students must take this class before taking other digital classes unless they have previous digital experience. 

Week 1: Students will be introduced to Procreate with a basic demonstration of its tools, gesture controls, and layer functions. Afterwards, they will create simple landscape pieces using their new skills. Returning or intermediate students will be challenged weekly with an additional caveat to their piece: in this case, they will use a limited color palette to create their artwork. 

Week 2: After reviewing the previous week’s work, students will begin to learn how to draw from life. Students will pair off into groups of two or three and take turns sketching one another. Intermediate challenge: students may only use a single brush for the entire sketch. Critiques to follow if time allows.

Week 3: Class will begin with a brief demonstration of figure drawing. The students will then create their own figure drawings following along with a costumed model on Youtube. Afterwards, they will be introduced to still life drawings and sketch out a pre-constructed scene of objects. Intermediate challenge: add color to still life piece(s). (This is already a challenging week for all students!)

Week 4: Students will bring or will be provided a portrait or a movie still to recreate in their own style, using all their learned skills from the past three weeks to make a finished illustration. Critiques/feedback if time allows.

Please note that we will not hold classes during Spring Break (March 13-17).
