Our teen portfolio class is designed to guide the development of an advanced portfolio. Students will work with a variety of materials to create art that is representative of their skills and interests. Students in this year long program will create an impressive portfolio and have an opportunity to showcase their artwork in a group art show at a local gallery.

At Alyce's Art Studio, we are dedicated to helping teens better understand the world and themselves by way of creative expression. Studies show that involvement in the arts attributes to success in math, reading, cognition, retention, and verbal skills.
Every class has a teacher student ratio of 1:6. Students are given one-on-one attention and the program is adjusted to meet individual needs.
Our specially designed teen curriculum, for ages 13-17, consist of 6 levels, 5-8 projects each, that will teach students to build consecutive techniques. Some of the techniques we will cover include composition, proportion, and perspective. The exploration into theory and technique will allow students to create dynamic artwork using a myriad of media including but not limited to graphite, charcoal, collage material, oil pastel, watercolor, and acrylic paints. Students will also be exposed to influential artists through which they will study unique and complex technical skills as well as get a glimpse of the visual history of art.
Our talented staff will show students how to break down complex objects and forms into basic shapes to develop form, line, shape, value and texture. With their guidance, students will be capable of bringing their imagination and ideas to life. Free-draws are offered throughout the program to allow our teen artists the opportunity to have full creative freedom and explore their style.
