Art Instruction/Expression


ArtWorks for Youth uses art instructionas a way for students to reflect on who they are, the people around them, and how they fit into this world. While teaching the basic elements of art, (line, color, space, design, value, shape, and texture,) we also encourage our students to use various media as a means of expression.

Many of ArtWorks for Youth’s art projects include portraiture, self-portraiture, body and brain mapping, as well as theme, tone, and emotion and how to show them in their artwork.
