Groups for Teens

Follow Your Art is creating studio space for teens of all abilities and interests, from the curious beginner to those who are looking to build portfolios for college. These groups can be registered for on the Online registration form for children/teens, and follows our Fall I and II Schedule. In addition, any teen over 16 may join our adult offerings.

Groups for Teens

Open Studio (ages 13+) Thursdays 7-8:30 pm

These are small, independent groups for self-directed artists wanting to improve drawing, painting, sculpture or design skills. Artists’ interests and abilities are assessed, and personal instruction in specific media is offered. We work one to one with artists to help them develop their personal style, challenge their creative skills, take risks and try new materials. Many artists work for multiple weeks on a project of their choosing, and an atmosphere of acceptance, encouragement and constructive collaboration is encouraged among artists.

Drawing Club (ages 11+) Wednesdays 6:00-7:30 pm

From figure drawing to portfolio building to animae, Chiara works individually with emerging illustrators to build skills based on passions and abilities. Observational drawing is an important practice for any drawing artist, and this group is a fun yet challenging way to combine observational drawing with imaginary elements. We aim to introduce an emerging artist to observational drawing without it becoming a chore! Instruction and challenges are based on individual interests, including comic characters and narrative, as well as provide basics in scale, perspective, figures and faces, then work with each artist at an individual level. Private tutoring also available.
