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.

    Priority is given to students taking the full boot camp but there are a few ala carte spots available in each week. 

    This workshop will concentrate on the practical aspects of painting through the study of still life. Emphasis will be given to a more painterly apporach. We will strive to balance and maintain the careful color relationships that we see in nature through the knowledge imparted through concepts as well as understanding the more mechanical aspects of drawing and painting, such as paint handling, color mixing, brushwork, surface quality, etc.

    Simple colorful objects such as fruits, vegetables, and cloth are encouraged in order to have a variety of hues and intensity of color. 

    Managing the palette is half the battle in painting. This class will strive to give a clear thinking process in order to dissect what we see in nature and translate it to the language of oil paint. This workshop is good for beginners or artists with more experience and will give participants the tools to approach each canvas with confidence.
