We have been teaching art classes to students K-12 for a decade now in the SF Bay Area. We strive continuously to be the best art school near Pleasanton, Tracy & now the world with our online art classes. Covid-19 has strengthened our resolve and evolved our mission statement to also focus on our student's mental health by being there for them as a trusted mentor and by personalizing each students experience. Although students are in groups, they are taught individually.
We have been successful in having our students win many art competitions and many of our art students have enrolled into the top colleges & art schools in the nation because of our college art portfolio preparation program (CAP3). Even if your child is not applying to an art college, many colleges see the value in accepting a supplementary art portfolio with their applications. An art portfolio speaks volumes about the student's personality, motivations, virtues and qualities.
We were founded by Omar Morineau, who has developed our tiered curriculum to meet the needs of children that we teach. The curriculum itself is focused on the many disciplines of art and it's techniques. We believe that every type of art influences the other. Learning about 3D arts such as ceramics and sculpture benefits the students understanding of rendering 2D images whether in dry drawing materials or paints.
Master Omar's art professor said that a Master Artist has learnt the spectrum of art mediums and techniques. Each art medium reacts differently when applied but has similarities to all others. Branching from one art medium to another strengthens the understanding of a developing artist. The techniques can be taught through exercises so that the primary work is not hindered by the students inexperience. With exercises comes confidence and proven ability.
We thank you for trusting us with your child's art education and appreciate any and all feedback from our art students and art guardians. Please reach out if you have any questions and concerns. Thank you so much for visiting our site.
