Study - Teaching Teens!

Teaching Teens! provide teenagers with a foundation of traditional techniques in drawing and painting. The training is based on principles and methodology taught in our full-time program. Students may use works produced for portfolio applications for Grand Central Atelier's full-time program and other art schools and/or universities as well as awards applications such as the annual Scholastic Art awards.

During the summer, we offer daytime workshops. During the school year, teenagers enroll in our regular weekend and evening programs.

It progresses to a single long pose that will last for the remainder of the class. Students will initially complete an accurate block-in of the figure and then move onto form modeling.
