This is our 13th year of teaching drawing, painting
Over the past 12 years BellinghamART has taught thousands of public, private and home school children and teens. We also teach an ever-growing number of adults who are learning visual perception, drawing and painting.
Drawing is the foundation for all visual art and learning the basics gives students an appreciation for art and world cultures. It gives them tools for creative expression, improved problem solving skills, and pride in their artistic accomplishments. By breaking down the art subject into simple shapes and building on that one step at a time our students learn to see the individual parts that make up drawings and paintings.
Our classes reflect a conviction that anyone, at any age, can learn to draw and paint. Our supportive environment is free of competition and other distractions helps to foster the concentration necessary for all of our students to achieve their artistic goals.
Get started with classes today!
