Art Workshops

Art workshops at The Marvegos build on the creative interests of our students. Goals are set for each project and students learn to use composition and form to complete original works of art. Workshops are shorter than regular school year sessions and offerings range from Digital Art to Life Drawing and Character Building.

No prior art-making experience is necessary, but because workshops involve more intensive instruction over a shorter period of time, a serious interest in the topic is recommended.

Workshop Policies

No make-ups will be offered for workshops. Please be sure your child can commit to this multi-week program before registering.

All workshops are subject to minimum enrollment numbers. Refunds will be issued for workshop cancelled by The Marvegos.

Portrait and Life Drawing Workshop

Our Portrait and Life Drawing Workshop will introduce kids to the basics of figure drawing including portraits and hands. Students will study the figure through gesture, anatomy, and form, focus on portraits and hands in relationship to the rest of the human form, and finally, create a drawing from a live model. Please bring a sketchbook to class. All other materials will be provided.
