Experience the first steps of developing an art portfolio with like minded young artists of all levels in a positive and creative space. Learn new skills in drawing, painting, digital art, mixed media and more to turn your ideas into impressive finished work. Supportive instructors guide you on advancing your studio practices and developing a strong artmaking process to pursue your artistic goals. You will learn the basics of composition, color schemes, proportions, perspective, depth, and more through a combination of observational & conceptual artmaking. Family and friends are invited to celebrate your progress on the last day of class to view your artwork displayed in the Final Showcase, an exhibition that all students work together to curate and hang. One of your pieces may be chosen for The Art Effect’s Teen Visions exhibition in September!

Choose either a Fine Arts major or a Digital Arts major:

  • Fine Arts majors focus on introducing studio practices and developing techniques using various paints, pastels, charcoal, ink, and more during most of their day. Fine Arts majors will minor in Digital Art 
  • Digital Arts Majors learn the foundations of photo manipulation, photography, animation, and digital illustration & painting while exploring different forms of technology and proper equipment usage. Digital Art majors will minor in Fine Art

Take your artistic passion to the next level in the Junior Art Institute and emerge with artwork that portrays your unique narrative!
