Registration is open year-round.
Founder and principle art-instructor: Anastasia Savenko-Moore
Our main visual arts course offered to all students is Composition. Step by step our program introduces different aspects of composition and provides training in various media techniques, drawing, painting, sculpting/modeling, and applied arts. Basics of art theory and history are also folded into the program. The small group size of 3 to 6 students allows for personal attention and well-tailored instruction. Each student receives individual assignments and can progress through the course at his or her own pace.
In addition, we offer focused training in academic drawing, specific art-media and applied arts, as well as master classes with different artists and visiting instructors. Teenagers have an opportunity to participate in an Apprenticeship Program, working with established artists on a variety of projects.
The school regularly organizes art exhibits at local venues to showcase children's work. We encourage our students to participate in regional art contests and international art exchanges.
Over the years our students have been recipients of numerous awards, including prizes at events such as the annual art contest at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene, Lane County Fair, Coos County Fair, and Coos Art Museum in Oregon.
