Painting is good for your soul. It improves your memory, relieves stress and promotes mindfulness. It helps you be more aware of and more engaged with the world.
But how do you start painting if you have never painted or haven't painted for years?
You start by learning the basic visual elements like color, shape, line and composition in a supportive environment through fun painting exercises. By studying both art history and contemporary art, students learn how to look at art in a better way and make their own paintings more dynamic.
Through this focus on visual elements, art criticism, and basic painting skills students produce great paintings.
