OXNARD TEENS! Enjoy an artsy Summer on us!

In this class we explore Collage (a composition made of various materials such as paper, cloth, or wood glued on a surface) and works on paper. Through different mediums, we’ll explore  the elements of art (line, shape, form, space, value, texture, and color) and  expand our creativity through the playful use of collage and mixed-media techniques.

Students are encouraged to use their sketchbook to form a habitual practice for idea exploration. 

Space is VERY limited and is on a scholarship basis for ages 13-17 / Grades 8-12.
