Fine Art Programs

Drawing

Learn to translate the world of 3D form onto the 2D picture plane. This skill-oriented class will provide the building blocks to enable you to draw what you see. You will learn shading techniques to enable you to create volume and measurement skills to sharpen your awareness of proportion while studying composition. Draw from clothed live models as well as still life. Students will use charcoal, graphite and pen & ink.

Painting, Drawing & Mixed Media

Children will learn concepts such as line, value, proportion, rhythm, and color theory while their imaginations are actively engaged in projects that encourage self-expression. Small class size and systematic instruction helps to support the budding artist in every child. Critical thinking skills are developed as children learn to talk about art. Students will learn how to use a variety of media including paint, pen and ink, printmaking, collage and clay.

Digital Photography

Learn to use your digital camera to cultivate a critical eye and capture the images you want to create. Work in programs such as Lightroom and Photoshop to download and retouch your digital photos. View the work of the masters of photography during in-class slide lectures. Learn the language of visual expression through group critique and class trips to museums and galleries in NYC. Field trips will be held on Saturdays. Students must have a laptop and a digital camera. One hour is spent on the class and the other on the field trip.

Arts and Craft

Arts and crafts comprise a whole host of activities and hobbies that are related to making things with one's hands and skill. Children will learn crocheting, doll making, sewing, patch work and much more. In Jewelry Making students create personalizes and original pieces.

COVID-19 UPDATE for 2020-2021

As we plan for fall at the Art’s House Schools, we’d like to give you an update on our path to reopening. Under New York State and CDC guidelines and recommendations, we will reopen AHS in three distinct phases:

Phase1: All programs will be delivered virtually.

Dance Parents- If you want your child to have the studio experience at home, we believe dancers will have a better virtual learning experience if they are provided with in-studio tools. While it is not mandatory, we recommend investing in a portable dance floor (and ballet bar, if taking ballet lessons). Purchasing these items is an investment Art’s House Schools are willing to share the cost for; we will cover the cost of one month’s tuition or the price of the dance floors and bar, whichever is less.

Phase 2: When deemed safe to have classes in-person, we will move into Phase 2. During this phase, programs will be delivered in a hybrid format blending in-person and online classes. We will provide more information on this hybrid programming at a later date.

Phase 3: When we can safely increase the capacity for in-person classes, AHS will move into Phase 3. While we will continue to offer online instruction, most students will take courses in person.

As always, safety is our priority. The health and well-being of our students, staff, and families are our top priority. If you have any questions regarding the phasing plan, please feel free to call us at 718-996-2000.
