Virtual Young Artist Academy: The Art of Drawing

with Melissa Hendrixon


This five-week long weekday virtual class offers an opportunity for children 10-14 to develop and hone their drawing skills within convenient afterschool hours at the comfort of their home. The course focuses on life drawing and emphasizes mastery of light and shadow, contour, texture, and other techniques. Learning from the great draftsmen, represented in PAFA’s collection, the young artists will develop confidence in creating drawings that capture a likeness, create naturalistic effects, and even play illusionistic tricks. 

Each student will receive an Art Toolbox, by mail with specialized drawing supplies.

The Art Toolbox - a drawing set, sketchbook, vine charcoal, and special illustration markers.  

You will also need: 

  • Extra Pencil/Eraser 
  • Water Color paint 
  • Other coloring materials (colored pencils, markers, etc.)
