Students will learn fundamental techniques while exploring a variety of media and activities that promote artistic exploration and playfulness in art-making including painting to music, abstract portraits, Action Painting, Abstract Expressionism, learning to draw a still life, drawing light & shadow, and more! The NAA Youth Program will strengthen foundational skills, allow for exploratory learning, and make connections among the visual arts, music, and art history.
