The KidsArt/ Drawn2Art Program

Through a step-by-step method, students, ages 4 - adult, are taught basic drawing and painting skills which result in art work that is realistic and attractive. Our students no longer experience boredom or frustration, as they are taught on an individualized basis according to their personal abilities and proficiencies, moving ahead at their own pace. This enables them to be given the artistic “tools” they need to create art for the rest of their lives. KidsArt/ Drawn2Art works with students to build skills. Starting with simpler two-dimensional work, students then progress to adding tone and color values to create three-dimensionality.

The Approach

KidsArt/ Drawn2Art’s philosophy is “creativity follows mastery,” and that a strong foundation of artistic skills will enable students to eventually follow any artistic path they choose. Just as the great Masters first became proficient in classical drawing and painting, so do KidsArt/ Drawn2Art students. Instruction, coupled with practice will bring about an independent and confident artist.

KidsArt/ Drawn2Art students learn how to see in a new way. They are shown that what may look difficult to draw at first glance is really simple once they learn how to see it piece by piece. KidsArt/ Drawn2Art teaches students how to measure with the eye, how to break something into its parts, and put it back together again to make a whole picture.



The student explores a wide array of drawing and painting mediums such as graphite, charcoal, pen and ink, pastels, watercolors, acrylics, oils and more. Once students are proficient in their drawing skills, they progress into the exploration of painting mediums. Students receive extensive instruction in the use of each painting medium, including color-mixing, painting techniques, and the proper use and care of materials.

We always take into consideration the students’ abilities and interests. This enhances learning of technical and artistic skills, while students are gaining patience, the ability to focus, and pride and confidence in their work.
