Learn to draw! Whether you want to learn the basics of drawing or improve existing skills, these are the classes for you! Instructors will show you new techniques and provide professional quality materials to complete your artwork. This guided step-by-step method improves visual perception skills by breaking down the subject matter for people of all ages to see and follow along with. The patented Monart Drawing Method was designed by leading art educator Mona Brookes, author of Drawing With Children and Drawing For Older Teens and Adults. In these monthly workshops students have fun using provided media, such as design markers, water color, water color pencil, acrylics, colored pencils, liquid graphite sticks, oil and chalk pastels while learning to draw!

Sept. 16th: MICHELANGELO, 1475-1564 In Michelangelo was a Renaissance genius. His paintings, sculptures, and architecture will be explored and admired as the children learn about his life and art. We will focus on his architectural forms to create a facade in “marble,” experience what it was like to paint while laying down and get a little messy! 
Oct. 21st: LEONARDO DA VINCI, 1452-1519 Leonardo enjoyed painting, inventing, sculpting and architecture. Leonardo was a Renaissance master known for his famous Mona Lisa. His genius of portraiture was extremely advanced for his era. Join us to draw a funny, pop art version of the Mona Lisa.
Nov. 18th: REMBRANDT, 1606-1669
Considered the greatest printmaker and most accomplished etcher of all time. Rembrandt had a special technique of painting highlights and shadow. This special “Rembrandt Lighting” will carry over to each student’s artwork in a Dutch landscape complete with a windmill. Have fun experimenting with scratch art!
Dec. 16th: MARTIN JOHNSON HEADE, 1819- 1904 Heade was a prolific American painter known for his salt marsh landscapes, seascapes, and depictions of tropical birds. Students will draw from a live orchid and choose between a hummingbird or blue morpho butterfly.
Jan. 20th: BOTTICELLI, 1445-1510 Botticelli created “The Birth of Venus.” We will collage a portrait of the Venus with tissue paper. The Renaissance was a great time for art, the sciences, and innovation of all kinds. Women in the 15th and 16th centuries had the most stunning, opulent hair and dress styles. Add details with gold paint to her hair!

Feb. 17th: RAPHAEL, 1483-1520 Raphael was one of the greatest geniuses of the Renaissance. His mastery or light and surprising use of color gave his artwork a depth few could replicate. Most of his work features religious scenes including angels and cherubs. We will use Caran d’Ache wax pastels and watercolors to complete a cherub painting.

Mar. 17th: GIUSEPPE ARCIMBOLDO, 1527- 1593 Arcimboldo was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. His portraits are so fantastic that several artists worldwide have used them for three-dimensional sculpture.

Apr. 21st : ALBRECHT DURER, 1471-1528 Although Dürer became one of the greatest oil painters of the Northern Renaissance, he is famous for his exquisite watercolors, engravings and woodcut prints. Albrecht Dürer was one of the first artists to view animals as a subject worthy of attention and he demonstrates this across a range of watercolors and prints. If you like printmaking this is the class for you!

At the Monart School of Art we strive to provide the very highest quality of art education. This is accomplished two-fold because of our patented method and our extremely qualified teachers. Join us and discover the Monart difference:

 We value individuality and creative differences – no two pieces of art will look the same!

 Students use all professional grade materials and learn how to use the materials properly

 Our teachers are educators that have taught in the classroom as well as artists that show on the national level

 We use a progressive curriculum that builds skill levels and teaches independent creativity and three-dimensionality. Our students don’t just copy pictures and the teachers line-by-line drawings, they learn to draw from real objects

 Our safe environment allows students to feel comfortable asking questions and learning problem solving techniques. Monart teachers are trained extensively in how to achieve a variety of creative results from the same lesson plan

 We teach serious drawing skills with many side benefits to academics while students have fun learning new skills
