This drawing-based class is part of a year-round course that focuses on building a foundation and expanding knowledge in the Fine Arts. Young artists will explore and build their creative capacities through sketching, painting, mixed media, sculpture, and digital media in a fun, relaxing atmosphere.
Each month, we will learn about a new medium linking age appropriate technical instruction with instruction in the elements of art, principles of design, art history, literature and examples of works by a wide variety of artists. Students may take the entire course or individual one-month sessions. This course aligns with California VAPA standards and is based on a constructivist learning model allowing students to move at their own pace.

It brings balance, calmness, beauty, focus, creativity and wellness to a child’s being and activates his/her potential and intelligence.
Seeing many amazing transformative results that practicing Oneness Calligraphy brings to people around the world, Chi-Xin is dedicated to helping children unlock their potential through writing the Oneness Calligraphy.
