YOUTH ART —(ages 7 to 12; age/skill level split up appropriately; no prerequisites).
Create simple and fun art projects inspired from the themes, subjects or stories provided chronologically in the Bible.

The student will be encouraged to show two pieces at the enKindle Arts Fest at Bethany in spring.
TEEN ART—(ages 13-17; age/skill level split up appropriately; no prerequisites).
Focusing on drawing and painting, design and meaning. This class is designed for the teen who loves art but does not get enough art in school for their liking.
