Art Discovery (ages 8-12)


Find your Voice through Visual Arts

Students explore different types of art and art techniques as they explore  the methods of realism, impressionism, and surrealism.  Students will apply their learning in finding their own  artistic style!  

Whether you want to paint a self portrait, sketch a still life or ink up a comic, this course will give you the tools and confidence you need to begin your art portfolio. The course introduces preferred technique with graphite pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, acrylics, and ink as well as providing a study in color theory, perspective, proportion, face and figure, shading and more. 

Students will have a chance to showcase their art to family and friends throughout the year and present their work, in gallery fashion, at our end of year Celebration Performance in June!
Supplies for class: Studio Sharise Art Kit and an art smock. Additional supplies will be necessary as students progress.  Paints are supplied by us! Contact us for details at 408.703.5488 or
The impact of Early Art experiences in Early Childhood Education can be a nurturing building block in child development and serve as a strong foundation in learning. Art can serve as a natural activity to creative free play for children. The freedom to manipulate different materials in an organic and unstructured way allows for exploration and experimentation. These artistic endeavors and self-directed explorations are not only fun, but educational as well. Art allows toddlers to practice a wide range of skills that are useful in early development learning.
