Art Class Curriculum

Oregon Artist School currently has 5 different levels of achievement. Each level takes 6 to 8 months to complete. The timeframe for completing all 5 skill levels is 36 months. Once your child/children has/have completed all 5 levels they will receive an Oregon Artist School completion certificate. The list of art disciplines taught are as follows: Oil Pastel, Sketching, Water Color, Color Pencil, Gouache, Cartoon Anime, and Oil Painting. The levels are split up into the following time frames: Beginner 6 months, Intermediate 6 months, Advanced 8 months, Professional 8 months and Oil Painting 8 months. Parents will be required to sign out their student/s at the end of each class. Teachers will provide written feedback for students after their classes. This will allow parents to track their child's/children's progress. Each class will last an hour and a half and will meet once a week.

Art Camp & After School Program

Oregon Artist School also hosts several different camps throughout the year. Currently we have Spring, Summer and Winter Art Camps. There is also a Daytime Art Camp when there is no school due to administrative school functions. Art Camp is between the hours of 9AM to 5PM, Monday through Friday. The different art disciplines taught in the morning for camp are Sketching, Water Color, Oil Pastel, and Color Pencil. Oil Painting is taught in the morning at a professional level. In the afternoon more relaxed disciplines will be taught for the students enjoyment, such as working with Clay, Sand Painting, Chinese Painting, Anime drawing and Arts & Crafts. Students will also have the chance to draw outside of class and free snacks will be provided during Art Camp. All Art Camps are professionally taught and the safety of all students is assured.
Oregon Artist School also has an After School program. The After School program will consist of Arts & Crafts, English Classes, Math Classes and helping children with their homework. The hours are from 3pm to 6pm Monday through Friday. We will provide pickup from the following schools: Bethany Elementary School, Jacob Wismer Elementary School, Findley Elementary School, Rock Creek Elementary School and Springville K-8 School.
