ARTastic! For Older Kids (9+) - Tuesdays

with Barb Hegeman


Registration is also available by calling our office at 615-822-0789.

Do great artists have a secret that allows them to see the world in a different way? The answer is yes, and in this class your older children ages 9 to 12 will learn to create realistic drawings using a method called Monart. Created by the noted artist and teacher Mona Brookes, the Monart method provides children with an alphabet of five basic shapes that markedly improves their visual perception and drawing skill. The exquisite drawings in the panel above were created by students using this proven method. Ms. Barb is a master of this method, and she’ll have your older kids working with graphite, charcoal, colored pencils, pastels, acyrlics and watercolors to create amazingly realistic artworks in no time. As student begin mastering techniques and media, they’ll be encouraged to develop their own style and unique creative approach.

Member discount: 15 percent. Supply fee: $50.
