Class Details

August 28, 2023 to May 31, 2024

School-year lessons are weekly, one-hour classes structured on a semester basis. 

Students begin with at least 2 semesters of Drawing/Colored Pencils. This medium allows them to gain a solid foundation in critical art skills which can then be transferred to painting. They learn to draw and to gain mastery of color by layering and mixing color and by creating textures through color. In painting class, students continue to develop their drawing and color skills as they learn how the paint moves, blends, and interacts with the surface of the canvas. 


These classes are for all skill levels. Our teachers will continue to challenge students as they progress from semester to semester. 


These classes are for students ages 8-24 and have a pre-requisite of two semesters of drawing class with Fizer Fine Art. Our teachers will guide students with individual instruction as they work with acrylic paints.


Classes are held weekly and last one hour. Class fees are on a per class basis and are paid for one month at a time on the first of the month in which they are taken. For example, if there are four Mondays in a month, the total due for Monday classes with Sarah would be $88 (or 4 x $22).
