Fun Creative Art Classes for Children and Adults at the MTRP Visitor Center
Beginners class 12:30 - 2:30 Advanced class 2:45 - 4:45
Everyone is an artist! An artist’s imagination and creative process simply needs to be nurtured and grown! Our classes are for students looking to experience a variety of media in which to explore and express their unique creative process while having fun investigating different techniques and approaches. We will also engage with the gorgeous landscape outside our doors for both inspiration and at times subject matter. BetteAnn will guide students through each lesson according to each artist’s ability, creative goals, and unique process. Class subject themes are based on nature and even blend a little science with them.
There is also a second class welcoming both more experienced youngsters 7yrs and up, as well as the beginning adult. BetteAnn will be teaching students some of the important techniques used in classical fine art to create a 3 dimensional look on a 2 dimensional surface, such as 1 and 2 point perspective, rendering and shading, light, space and composing, color blending and theory in a step by step series. In this more in depth second afternoon class students bring their own art supplies. A supply list will be emailed upon registration along with best places to obtain them. Students also have the freedom to work in any media they already have in this second class. These times we live in certainly require more creative problem solving! What better way to expand one’s imagination, skills and creativity then making art in such a beautiful environment as MTRP!
BetteAnn brings decades of experience in the arts as well as a love of science and nature to the classroom. She has been teaching after school arts programs with Art Smarts, Inc. for three years. She received her BFA degree from Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University. One of her favorite subject matters in her own art is the human machine! She loves nurturing students, introducing them to the arts, guiding them in finding their own unique creative style, favorite subject matter. Come discover the “art-smartist” in you and your child!
