Art Verve Academy

Learn, Create, & Cultivate!

We practice art together. We want learners to engage with the content and begin applying it as soon as possible. Join us for a practice session or a meetup!

Village Art Practice

Sometimes it takes a friendly village with verve to be inspired, find motivation or feel supported! Village art practice allows face-to-face contact, the free flow of ideas & place where individuals can cultivate together.

Come draw or paint with us in a supportive environment this Fall with an Art Verve Instructor present. Two NEW series are now open on Sunday Mornings.

Enroll Section A runs Sep. 17 - Oct. 29, 2018.
Enroll Section B runs Nov 5 - Dec. 17, 2018.

Village Art Practice

Visual Art Practice Session

Social learning is an effective way to develop or hone your skills. Learning is made up of enduring, ongoing interactions, relationships, and information exchanges. We can, and sometimes must learn in isolation, but sharing information with others is usually the glue that makes any knowledge stick.

Work on self-directed projects in these sessions. Set up your own still life or bring in a reference photo. Use any medium. Access easels, drop cloths, tables & chairs. Bring in your own supplies, sample new materials or try a whole new medium (tools & consumables provided).

Participate with other enthusiasts in the group review, share completed work or bring in your work for individual feedback. Note that you are not required to share your own work during the review.

An Art Verve instructor will be present to moderate, answer questions, provide plenty of individual feedback, one-on-one instruction, or perform short requested demonstrations.
