Ages 10-14
This course gives an introduction to basic techniques and fundamental concepts that artists use to create successful drawings and paintings.

Students will build observational skills, use their imaginations, and visit WAG exhibitions.

In order to help ensure the comfort and safety of all visitors and staff, as of August 11, the WAG has a mandatory face covering policy in place. We ask that all guests aged 5 and older wear a mask, scarf, or bandana that covers the nose and mouth while in public spaces at the Gallery.

As per our reopening protocols announced in May, we encourage physical distancing, tables/chairs/supplies are sanitized frequently, and all staff and patrons are asked to self-screen before coming.

You can read more about our safety measures here.
