Carmen’s Art Class

Youth Visual Art Classes

With Caetani’s very own: Carmen Thompson

Carmen’s Art Class aims to foster creativity and an appreciation for art at young age. The program will introduce students to a variety of different techniques and materials including watercolour, charcoal, paint, pencil crayon, and pastel. It will evoke their curiosity and imagination through the use of different mark making, various materials and critical thinking. Students will develop hand/eye coordination, observational skills, focus, and a deeper understanding of art. Using art as a form of education, Carmen’s Art Class offers a fun and relaxed environment in which students are able to develop their self-confidence and independence through art making.
