KidsArt bequeaths quivering brushes and eager pastels unto children and adults seeking enthusiastic instruction in realistic drawing and painting. Apprentice artists share anti-stick-figure literature before working in a variety of media, including watercolor, oil paints, pastels, and charcoal. Passionate instructors encourage students, catering to their individual abilities and interests and allowing them to progress at their own pace. Budding Picassos learn the mechanics of their chosen media, as well as the basic principles of form and shape for a jumpstart toward photorealistic art and stellar geometry grades. Some students may finish a piece of art during the class time, and others may only have created a painting of a marshmallow in a blizzard. Schedules vary by location, but classes are held most often in the early evening Monday–Friday and throughout the day on Saturdays. Contact participating KidsArt locations for class registration information.
A gallery of masterpieces showcases stunningly virtuosic renderings—which are especially impressive considering they were created by kids. While fostering a friendly, cheerful atmosphere, instructors teach classical art skills to classes of up to 12 students at a time. During weekly classes, the skilled instructors demonstrate how to realistically illustrate animals, figures, and still-life scenes using traditional media. "Creativity follows mastery" is the KidsArt philosophy, so they designed the sort of program they imagine the old masters would have approved. Planting graphite sticks and paintbrushes in pupils' hands, instructors teach color mixing, show students how to break an image into its component parts, and instill necessary behaviors such as focus and patience. Programs include individualized drawing and painting lessons and special-topic workshops, such as clay sculpture, figure drawing, and Anime/cartooning.
