FAQ’s For Young Artist Studio Series

What is the curriculum for this workshop series?

Our teaching artists have a wealth of knowledge in their medium, whether it’s in printmaking, drawing & painting, digital illustration, fashion design or ceramics. Their goal is to teach students the fundamental skills needed so that they can branch out on their own and create artwork that is unique and interesting to them! To achieve this, our curriculum will be flexible to allow students to follow their interests and to accommodate different skill levels.

Who is this class for? Can a beginner take this class?

All skill levels are welcome in our Young Artist Studio Series! Part of McColl Center’s mission is to spark creative experiences, and for many artists that begin in childhood. Our teaching artists will meet your students where they are, from exploring the very basics with beginners to helping more experienced students to learn a new practice or master a particular skill.

What does my child need to bring? What do we need to know before classes start?

We ask that our young artists wear clothes that can get messy, a water bottle, and closed toe shoes! Parents + Guardians will receive a welcome email one (1) week before the start of classes with information on drop-off and pick-up, their instructor, and any other details related to the class series.

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will not be given for missed classes, or for registrations canceled less than seven (7) days before the start of the first session. For a full refund (minus $10 processing fee), email no less than a week before the first day of class.
