Summer Kids & Teens

Our 2017 summer season of art workshop weeks for children & teens was another success! Please check back in January to see the 2018 summer line up of  Painting, Drawing and Illustration Classes for ages 8-17.


Children and Teens enjoy learning how to become better artists At Rosemarie Morelli Art Studio School. Summer Art Workshop Weeks offer students both group and individual instruction in Drawing, Painting and Illustration. The relaxed-structured classes allow students to work on their main project of their choosing at their own speed. Individual instruction is provided to guide each student’s level of ability to a better understanding of art. Each day includes a fun, short group activity designed to inspire and focus; teach a “how to…” art technique; and build the fundamental skills necessary to improve their drawing and painting while exploring the elements of landscapes, seascapes, still life objects, portrait, anatomy, animals and fantasy characters. Students create artworks in their choice of media: oil, acrylic and watercolor paints; pastels; pen & ink; color pencil; charcoal; conte crayons; graphite; and 3D multi-media materials including plaster, modeling clay, papers, fabrics, and textiles.

RosemarieMorelliArtStudio_SamanthaPuppyAge9Rosemarie Morelli Art Studio School provides a fun and supportive learning environment for children and teens of all skill levels. The studio classroom is equipped with drafting tables and easels; stocked with quality fine art supplies; offers a bright and safe workspace; air-conditioned; and has convenient off-street parking for easy drop off and pick up with direct entry into the 1st floor studio.
