How We Teach
Acrylic Art Lessons
Acrylic group art lessons are offered to children starting at 4 years old (please consult with us before enrolling your child in our “Little Artists” art lessons).
Acrylics are a colorful and bright art media which can be applied on acrylic paper or canvas. We use basic or semi-professional acrylic colors in tubes with special synthetic brushes.
At Vivo Art Studio we give attention to children’s art education. It’s important to develop a child’s art vision and skills.
“Little Artists” Art Lessons
Our art lessons and courses are available for little artists as well. We are happy to teach little ones and help them to create and express themselves. Art lessons are available for kids ages 4 – 5 years old. We offer pencil study, watercolor and acrylic. We also include the charcoal and pastel pencils experience. Art lessons for little students are available in groups on Tuesdays from 5pm – 6pm.
Please consult with us before enrolling your child in our “Little Artists” art group.
Acrylic color is a “heavy” art media which can be applied on a thick acrylic paper or canvas. We use basic or semi-pro acrylic colors in tubes while teaching children application and mixing techniques.
Watercolor media is the complete apposite of acrylic media. Watercolors are a soft and almost transparent art media for a single application on watercolor paper.
We create paintings by using soft brushes for watercolor media and synthetic brushes for acrylic colors.
Ink painting is generally a black and white approach to art. However, we do offer our young artists different ink variety so they can also experience and express their emotions in color via art therapy!
Ink art is performed on paper. We use different size synthetic brushes and water to mix the ink.
Drawing is the very first step in art and it’s extremely important. During our art lessons kids start with the basics. One example is learning the correct way of holding a pencil while drawing.
We also teach different ways of shading and sketching with pencil and charcoal.
Our drawing classes include composition, perspective, object proportions and portrait measurements in art.
Sketching is a fun and fast way of drawing. Our students can experience sketching with pencils or charcoal. A sketch usually takes just a few minutes to complete. A good sketch artist can “share” emotions and movement to the viewer through his or her artwork.
We love sketching!
Watercolor is one of our favorite art medias. Please note that watercolor painting is also one of the most difficult and challenging art medias. We teach dry on dry, wet on dry and semi-dry watercolor approaches.
During a watercolor art lesson our students will use cold press watercolor paper, watercolor brushes and watercolor media in tubes.
All students MUST have excellent discipline during art class. We do not allow running, jumping or leaving the classroom (except for a bathroom break) during an art lesson.
We request that each student be kind and respectful to others. No art critics during an art class. We promote supporting each other by sharing helpful comments to other students in the classroom.
Talking during an art class is allowed as long as the student’s artwork is progressing. No loud conversation is permitted. We want to make sure that each student is able to focus on their artwork.
Students MUST listen and pay attention to the art teacher’s directions and instructions at all times.
Art courses in a group (2 or more children) are available for kids 6+ years old. We offer several painting and drawing courses, with a duration of 4 weeks (total 4 hour course). Please note that the student is committed to attend each class. Art courses vary between $250 – $350 per 4 week session. The kids will experience and learn about the specific art theme of their choosing (options include sketching, figure drawing, principles of composition, pastel art, color study, color combination and more).
We customize art courses based on your child’s age and art skills. The Art Course option is a great choice for families looking for private art lessons.
