Art faculty-level of teaching in Leduc!!
Classes modelled on what is taught in Art Schools - and reworked for children, teens and adult art amateurs.
Our Art Program
Introducing a Comprehensive Foundational Art Skills program called "Look, then See" created for us by Leanne Snellen. This is a series of beginner art classes meant to develop skills in classical art techniques. The classes are modelled on what is taught in art schools - however, the content is re-worked for children, teens and adults! Participants will enjoy learning and seeing their own skills develop in this structured program!
From the moment they step into the classroom, participants will be treated to a focused work environment that is set out for them; their easels, paper, tools and still life models prepped and ready. The first 5 minutes of class time are for an introduction to the assignments of the day, either as a fun video or as a demonstration by Leanne Snellen. Then 10 second drawings, 30 second drawings and 1 minute drawings follow, to help focus the mind and tune into the creativity of the right side of the brain. Students will learn to tune out distraction as they then work on the age-appropriate assignments of the day. The last 5 to 10 minutes of class are reserved for a gentle critique of the day's creations, to help students develop their own objectivity and their ability to understand the skills being developed. Time is set aside after each class for parents to view the work of the day and ask questions of the teacher.
Leanne Snellen is an emerging artist from Leduc County. She graduated from MacEwan University with a Fine Art Diploma in 2011 and then received a Bachelor of Fine Art with distinction in 2015. Keenly interested in art education, Leanne is excited about helping others to learn the classical steps of drawing and painting in a new Beginner Art Series developed for the Leduc School of Music, called "Look, then See". As well as being an artist and art teacher, Leanne works as a registered nurse, and is a dairy farm wife, mother, and grandmother.
