Academy Mask Policy – Fall 2021

 

Any student under the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their camp/class. For any participant age 18+, masks are highly recommended and encouraged regardless of vaccination status.

 


 

In this class, students will have the opportunity to express themselves through art while building upon the basic principles and foundations of drawing, including different grades of paper and pencils, light and shadow, and perspective.

Because each student is unique, projects may be altered and one-on-one instruction will be given to suit each student’s skills, talents, knowledge, and interest level. All supplies are included.
