Update May June 7 2022
DIGITAL ART/ANIME WEEKLY WORKSHOP COMING FOR JUNE-JULY
Welcome! Currently offering the following classes:
Children and teens K- 12 ,drawing and painting classes
Adult Drawing and Painting Class
Free trial class, beginners welcome!
This business was started in 1989 by the first owner, Kris Sosa, then called Antelope Valley School Of Fine Art. In 1994 I was hired by Mrs. Sosa as an assistant. 2006, she retired and I took over the business, renaming it in 2016. We are still friends today. This is a small, local, privately owned and operated business.
We have even been blessed by generational students !
Beginning to advanced, traditional subjects: watercolors, acrylic, oil painting, colored pencils and drawing.
Soft pastel has been temporarily removed from the
K-12 program but will return later on.
Acrylics are new to the program, still working out a long term system for them.
Note: the entire curriculum is currently being observed for a summer redesign.
Due to the transitions, a second free trial class is currently offered.
Start anytime, stop anytime and long breaks are OK.
What to expect:
Working both from reference and imagination. Building skills to draw and paint in three dimensions. Common subjects and themes.
Reference can be from our large photo cache, step by step lessons, or brought in from home. Please no devices.
Abstraction where preferred.
A fun and open, gentle atmosphere for children and adults.
Our many years of experience helping others learn and show successfully .
My pair of adult Standard Poodles may be present. If a dog-free class is needed contact me and I'll provide the times when they are not in the studio.
Currently caring for a 1-year old Sulcata tortoise, a classroom favorite.
What not to expect:
Any instruction referring to or leaning on TikTok or YouTube art tutorials.
While they can be great as an ice breaker into making art and fun to follow along at home, and beyond, I do not watch them and can't teach to them.
Please allow me to serve you best in sharing my own knowledge of many years of study and practice.
Working from devices. Please choose from the large step drawing/photo cache , or we can look up and print out reference, or bring it in person.
I also offer the following services: badge-earning workshops, Girl Scouts, etc.,
commissions, pet portraits, murals ( by extension ) and restoration/touch-up.
Restoration is case by case and usually very reasonable.
Always happy to take a look.
