Teen ONLY classes are on Mondays 4-6pm.
Early teen classes are on Thursdays 3.30-5.30pm or Saturday 2.30-4.30pm
All classes learn the art of painting and drawing incorporating Art-with-a-Map.
What age to start?
A good question because it’s usually in the balance as few of our Children’s classes still have a young teen or two in them, by choice.
studioMAP provides art classes separately to children, pre-and early-teen and teen-only categories. The main point to know is that we bridge the whole range and we are flexible near the edges.
Teen-only classes offers what the name implies so participants can mix with other teens (only).
The Teens-Only classes ages range from approx 15 – 18 yrs old.
We offer flexibility in timing when it best suites the individual to choose which category and when to transition. Participants can be assured that if things don’t work out then returning to a category is made easy. Obviously this is a negotiable area. Some teens, although actually teen aged are better suited to a ‘early teen’ class that has a mix of ages perhaps including pre-teens and that’s OK.
Sooner or later though, most teens prefer an all-teen class so we offer that too. If you are not sure please feel free to discuss this further.
What goes on in our teen classes?
Group and individual demonstrations and technical issues are still practiced however each teen student has a more tailored approach to learning.
As the abilities and art skills vary much more as students get older, a greater emphasis is on more individually specific – technical requirements.
At studioMAP all students select their own art projects, based on their own interests, enquires and themes. We do assist this process when required. Projects usually go on for a few weeks depending on the style, approach, enjoyment and ability of the student. Teen students take-aim, develop and take control of the processes and gain the means of developing a visual art expression.
All teen projects are supported with one-to-one assistance and still learn and apply out general curriculum known as Art-with-a-Map. This curriculum process continues to gain deeper states and levels of application.
Students can learn or focus on traditional skills or and as well explore modern and more contemporary art. The Art-with-a-Map curriculum is designed to instruct and fulfill the technical requirements across all formats and styles..
Portfolio development is also offered. We also visit galleries, encourage discussion about the arts and experimental practices in the visual art. Oh and it’s fun too!
studioMAP supplies all the tuition, workshop access, all the basic materials; like paper, cardboard, paints, tools and many other basic mediums. Protective smocks/aprons and individual student storage is also supplied.
Teen classes include a self-regulated snack-break (students supply their own snack/drinks etc).
studioMAP also offers a separate Illustration only workshop every Friday – suitable for children. For teens who wish to participate more in illustration in areas such as Poke-Art, Manga styles, cartoon and comic art as well as general and graphic illustration they can do so within the teen classes. This also includes access to graphic tablets and digital screens.
