Art Steps' five-tiered educational program cultivates creative flowering with lessons that carefully build from foundational skills to full-fledged mastery. Introductory classes assess initial ability before pupils move on to basic drawing and painting lessons that deliver a strong understanding of line, color, and tone. Once students master art techniques and can make a flat image look 3D, oil lessons give advanced students the opportunity to learn trickier painting techniques and study the masters. Independent study allows ambitious students to build their portfolio and prep for applications to art school.
