Class Descriptions:
spacer
Mixed Media I — ages 5-8
Students are taught step-by-step techniques using pencil, pastel, acrylics, clay, as well as other mixed media, focusing on light/shadow, color, composition, form, and perspective. This is a broad class designed to introduce young students to a wide range of art forms and styles through Art History, encouraging self-confidence and allowing them to find their strengths and interests.
spacer Mixed Media II — ages 7+
Mixed Media III — ages 10+

This class will allow students to explore a wide range of media and techniques which will include drawing, pastels, oils, watercolor, clay and paper mache/ sculpture, as well as various printmaking techniques. Individual attention will allow students to follow their interests at their own pace, to further their skill and broaden their horizons.
spacer
Famous Artists — ages 5-8
Young students will explore famous artists throughout history by creating artwork inspired by their paintings and sculptures.
spacer Oil Painting — ages 7+
This class will teach oil painting techniques used by old masters throughout art history such as Rembrandt, Monet, and Vermeer. With this rarely taught medium, young artists will learn to build form using light, shadow, and halftone, to achieve realism. Each student, depending on ability, will work from traditional still life, and photo-reference. The ability to create the illusion of reality provides a means for further self expression in any style.
spacer
Drawing — ages 9+
This class will introduce basic fundamentals of drawing such as line, shape, value, perspective and composition through traditional exercises and techniques such as sketching, contour and gesture drawing. Working primarily in graphite and charcoal, students will be introduced to a general knowledge of the medium, and they will build a good understanding of how to apply these elements learned in class so they can create their own expressive drawings. Students will work from observation or photos (representational or abstract) for final drawings.
spacer Drawing/Painting — ages 8+

Teen/Adult I Drawing/Painting — ages 12+

Students will work in their area of interest. Beginners thru advanced students will focus on fine art techniques, and strengthen their understanding of light/shadow, composition, and color theory though observation. Working at their own pace and skill level, this class will allow students to be productive in a fun, relaxing environment where they can express themselves and their ideas.

Teen Portfolio Prep & Advanced Painting
— ages 14+

Whether the goal is to create a strong portfolio for a High School Fine Art Program, an Undergraduate degree, or simply to learn higher level techniques and concepts, this class will inspire and advance your skill. Former students have successfully gained acceptance into Red Bank Regional, Communications HS, and Universities such as Pratt, Syracuse, SVA, Steven Institute,MICA, RISD, and many more. It is recommended students take at least 1 year of classes at Inspired Minds or are accepted by Portfolio Review, if you have taken classes elsewhere or are coming back from studying art in the past. Heather, co-owner, specializes in oil painting, pastel, charcoal, and specifically portraiture and Illustration & Design concepts.
spacer Comics & Illustration
Illustration and comics are more than just funny characters and advertising, they are the arts of storytelling! In this class students will learn how to create a comic to communicate a story in a visually beautiful, and intriguing way. They will learn that understanding the design principles that go into any work of art apply to sequential and narrative art too. The students will study examples of narrative art throughout history, such as early cave paintings, the work of the first manga artist Katsushika Hokusai (early 1800s), as well as contemporary comic art and illustration.
spacer
Adult Studio
Our adult classes are perfect for any level! Classes will be tailored to individual needs, while encouraging experimentation. Each class will provide demonstrations on a variety of techniques with the goal of having each student broaden their skills and personal style.

The Drawing & Painting Adult Class will explore all aspects of drawing and painting in oil, charcoal, pastel, as well as other media.

The Mixed Media Adult Class will explore many different mediums and art techniques! Your interests will determine your area of study. We can include sculpture, watercolor painting, printmaking (such as lineoleum block prints), as well as other media!
