Teen Studio Time

At Brazosport Art League, one of our goals is to “support Fine Art education for the Brazosport area.”  To that end, Brazosport Art League would like help raise up the next generation of artists, by encouraging our teen artists so we’re opening up the studio on Tuesday afternoons for youth ages 13-18, in a program we call Teen Studio Time.

Teen Studio 1 meets Tuesdays, 1:30 PM — 3:30 PM and Teen Studio 2 meets Tuesday, 4:00 PM — 6:00 PM.  Spring 2021 semester meets Jan. 12 – May 18. 

No class March 9 during Spring Break.

Class fees are $70 per semester for Brazosport Art League members, all supplies included.  For new students, Brazosport Art League Student Memberships need to be purchased  for an additional $10.  BAL Student Memberships are good for 1 year, so returning students do not need to renew their memberships.

This class has a very loose, free-form structure.  Artists strive to show their individual creativity in whatever medium they choose to work. Students in Teen Studio are encouraged to show and grow their individual and unique creative nature and become the artists they were meant to be. Our course of study is “Recycle, Reclaim, Reuse”.   
 
We’ll continue applying the Elements of Art in various mediums, starting January off doing clay sculpture led by Joe Morris, then copper/metal assemblage and textile in February & March. Also on the schedule:  Acrylic painting basics – led by Mark Cameron, pastel basics – led by Linda Paulk.  In April we’ll start the large projects where the teens choose the medium and subject matter they want to work in. We finish our year with the exhibit in the Gallery in June 8 – July 3, 2021.
