THE KIDS ART ACADEMY                                           Drawing and Painting Skills Course

Hi I’m Julie and welcome to The Kids Art Academy. We run a unique and detailed drawing and painting skills course for kids aged from 7 yrs.  In the first year we extend their observations as they progress through a series of exercises designed to give them a solid foundation. Then we build on these skills teaching techniques and using many mediums to unleash their creativity.  During the course we cover a large variety of topics in sketch, cartoon, design, painting and collage.
