Teen Painting and Independent Study at Johns Creek Arts Center
This is the ideal class for teens who are serious about developing their own unique style in their artwork. Students will have the option to work with acrylic painting, watercolor, charcoal, pen and ink, or mixed media as they work to explore their own artistic vision.

We will create up to two pieces using a detailed process that will include composition studies, shooting and or finding reference photos, creating a detailed line drawing of our subject, and color studies prior to beginning the finished piece.

Our first class will be dedicated to media exploration and concept development. Supplies included.
