Our Art Class Programs
DRAWING - PAINTING - PHOTOSHOP
We provide art classes in Katy for Adults, Teens, and Kids 6 years old and up. Homeschool art classes are available as well as weekly ART CAMPS during Winter break, Spring break, and Summer break. Painting includes: oil paint, alkyd oil, acrylic, watercolor and gauche. Days and hours are flexible and you can begin anytime throughout the year.
Our classes are divided up into two programs. The general program which offers artists the ability to choose their own artistic styles and endeavors and the "Drawn into His Presence" program which offers a Christian perspective in the life of the artist. Here is a more in depth description:
Both Teens and Adult art lessons are offered the same beginning fundamental drawing lessons required to gain the skills they need to draw on a more advanced level and be able to use those skills in various other mediums such as Alkyd Oil, Watercolor or Colored Pencil or if they choose they can continue in graphite pencil. We can help mold a talented artist into something more, but we also want to make sure the beginning artist can move past their fear of trying. Our style of teaching can help anyone find true satisfaction with their art, often beyond what they may have thought was possible.
These fundamental art classes do not take long. The first few lessons will cover them more directly. However, to keep the class exciting, we will move onto drawing finished frame worthy projects within the third to fifth class depending on each students skill level. I need to introduce the fundamentals to make sure they are understood. Once that is established we simply apply and continue to learn more fundamentals during actual drawings or paintings.
Once you understand and have completed the first prerequisite classes then you can move on to our "Drawn to His Presence" programs, or simply continue in the "General Program" where you can pursue your own artistic endeavors for your pleasure. Whether you are choosing to build an art portfolio for college or continuing in the program just for your enjoyment and to make new friends, our program will work with you.
"Drawn to His Presence" program:
(This program is still in it's early development stages.)
The "Drawn to His Presence" program was developed for the Christian artist who wants to explore the spiritual side of their talents. We feel the Lord has truly given us a heart for artists who needs direction in fulfilling the purposes God has given them in the Kingdom. Many christian artists have trouble finding their role in the church and in the community. We want to encourage them to pursue their dreams as a Christian Artist for His praise.
In this program students will be transformed both in their art, the perception of how art is applied to the Church and why God created us as artistic people. We will study what it means to be an artist in the Kingdom. We are developing a program that will work hand in hand with the Bible, diving into scripture and creating pieces that reflect a visual image and our own representation of scripture in visual form. We will explore what it means to worship and praise with our art and what it means to allow our art to be used as an offering of hope, healing and in the mission field.

These are class Ideas the Lord has placed on our hearts and may transform and adjust as we break new grounds.
