ART CLASSES – CONROE CAMPUS 

Art 1 (Ages 8 - 11) - Cindy Johnson

We begin with a short study of art history. We will study shifts in style to see art in the flow of history. Students will learn begin to understand how to be good judges of art. We look at a lot of pictures of great art and discuss them. Students always enjoy this and it doesn’t take them long to form and state their own opinions!

After this, the class is hands-on as we learn the basic elements of art: space, line, shape, texture, value, etc, using color and learning more complex techniques. We will have lessons in things like pencil, art pens, watercolor, collage, sculpture, metal embossing, plaster and many other surprises. Students will learn how to see, and how to draw what they see. They will draw from real objects, copy great works, and use their imaginations. There will be many surprises and games thrown in to keep them guessing and excited.

As I get many repeat customers, I change classes continually so the identical class the following year will be completely different. Students may take the same class for years in a row and still benefit.

Students will be asked to bring easy-to-obtain supplies to class and purchase some initial supplies; all other materials I will hand out for them to keep as the year progresses.

Homework: 1-2 hours per week, depending on student’s personal interest.

Tuition is $50.00/month for ten months and is due beginning in July.  You may pay one of three ways: 1) set up a bank draft to arrive at the first of each month; 2) write ten post-dated checks, or 3) to pay the entire year at once ($50.00 x 10 months = $500.00)  There is a $70.00 supply fee for each semester totaling $140.00, so if you want to pay for the entire year, it would be $640.00.

As we often turn students away once you have reserved your space, there will be no refunds given after July 1.

Art 2 (Ages 12 - 14) - Cindy Johnson - Full - Wait list started

Class begins with a study of art history.  Study will be similar to that as stated in Art 1, but much more in-depth.  We will progress through time periods covering Christian, Byzantine, Pre-Renaissance, Renaissance, Reformation, Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, etc. up to modern times.  We will continually discuss how to distinguish worthy art from bad art – not just fine arts, but books, movies, music, etc.

The class is hands-on, learning the elements and principles of art. During the year, we will use materials like pencils, artists’ pens, vine and compressed charcoal, watercolors, metal embossing, prints, plaster and encounter many surprises along the way.  Students will learn how to see, and how to draw what they see.  They will draw from life, copy great works, manipulate and use pictures and photos, and draw from their imaginations. My goal is to help them become creative people in all areas, understand and not be intimidated by art, and become people that can creatively communicate to the world.

There will be weekly assignments.  Grading will NOT apply to a student’s artistic ability, but his completion of assigned work. Students will be asked to bring easy-to-obtain supplies to class and purchase some initial supplies; all other materials I will hand out for them to keep as the year progresses.

As my students return year after year, I change lessons continually.  A student my take the same class repeatedly and benefit greatly.

Homework:  1-2 hours/week. Two credits: One fine arts credit, one art history credit.

 Class size is limited to eight students who are VERY interested in art and ready to move fast and get their hands dirty.  This is the class that will answer some of the deeper questions in art and cultivate a lifelong love of creating.

 Finally, per your requests, I’m offering an in in-depth, advanced class which picks up where High School Art drops off!  Students must be well-versed in different art mediums, know the elements of art and be able to confidently create their own work.  Unlike my other classes there will be no art history.  We are going to be fully hands on and get deep into mixed media and painting, heavy into different types of printmaking and do a lot of creative exploring in many mediums. We are going to be makers, turning out a lot of beautiful work!

Please note, we will be doing a lot of printmaking which involves an extensive use of cutting tools, paper cutters and Exacto knives.  When you sign up for the class, you must also sign a release of liability form.

One credit in high school fine arts may be earned for this class.

 Tuition is $55.00/month for ten months and is due beginning in July, with a $100.00 per semester supply fee.  You may pay one of three ways:

1) set up a bank draft to arrive at the first of each month; 2) write ten post-dated checks, or 3) to pay the entire year at once ($55.00 x 10 months = $550.00) There is a $100.00 supply fee for each semester totaling $200.00, so if you want to pay for the entire year, it would be $750.00.
