Online | Drawing and Painting Fundamentals for Teens | age 12-16

This art class is for students in Year 6 at Primary school through to Year 10 at High School (aged 12-16 years)* with a strong interest in visual arts. A great class for kids wishing to pursue secondary level visual art and who really want to learn much more about art making, art history, refine and extend their skills in painting and drawing. Students will be encouraged to develop creative thinking and their own visual style.

This art class for teens is available Saturday morning or after school on Mondays.

What to expect

Through structured exercises, students will:

  • learn foundation skills in drawing and painting
  • explore more advanced visual art concepts
  • produce a portfolio of completed artworks

Our online classes are delivered by tutors in real-time where students can follow the same step by step instruction as they’d receive in our studio classes, ask questions and share what they are working on with their zoom class mates. For children’s classes delivered online, you will need to provide your own art materials.

Recommended Materials

Each tutor has different preferences, so we will email enrolled students with the final materials list depending on the class you join. So don’t rush out and order any new materials online just yet!

As a guide, your art kit should contain the following range of materials to get you through the term’s lessons:

For drawing:

  • Visual Diary or Sketch book – A4 size is fine.
  • HB pencil + Eraser + sharpener
  • Charcoal pencil

For painting:

  • Acrylic paints: You will need some tubes of quality acrylic paints in a limited range of colours.
  • Paint brushes: 3-4 brushes including a soft pointed brush for detail, Filbert 7.5mm (3/4cm) and Filbert 15mm (1.5cm)
  • Palette: use a white plate, clear perspex or buy a pad of disposable palette paper
  • Palette knife – any trowel shaped will do with blade about 30mm-40mm in length
  • water bucket and a soft rag or paper towels
  • 4 canvasses approx A4-A3 size, either square or rectangle (eg: 30x30xm, 30x40cm or thereabouts) (These can be recycled old canvasses that are painted over with white gesso or acrylic paint – event acrylic house paint will do the job. Make sure you do this and they are dry before your class though). If you don’t have any canvasses you can order them via email from Art Est and do a covid safe collection. Or you can gesso some thick paper in advance or use a pad of canvas paper (you’ll need tape it to a board with masking tape to keep it flat)

Your tutor will let you know each week if you need anything special/extra for the next week’s class such as objects to paint or draw, collage materials, etc.

Setting up your work space

Please make sure you work under consistent light, so it’s good to have a desk lamp so that you can illuminate your palette and canvas, and your tutor can see you and your work on the screen. As you may be working from a phone, tablet, laptop or PC – everyone is different – you don’t need to be in front of your screen the whole time so long as you can hear your tutor as you go.

Course testimonials:

  • I liked being able to do art lessons without doing as much theory. It was interesting to use mediums I hadn't used much before and try painting/drawing things I normally wouldn't. I have recommended this class to a friend of mine, though we are now too old to take the teens class and must take the adult one. Would recommend to others of the right age!
  • Ash is an amazing teacher. So patient and encouraging to the kids. He is a very skilled artist and Charlotte has loved every minute of his classes.
  • Thank you very much for teaching me. I liked the drawing still life and flowers the best. Miles
