ART CLASSES DURING COVID-19
Pygmalion is starting in-studio classes on June 1 and will continue with the regular class schedule until the end of July for students to make up any classes they missed.
Students will be required to wear a mask while in the studio, use hand sanitizer upon entry and practice social distancing. High traffic areas and supplies used will be cleaned and sanitized after each class. Classes will be small with a maximum of 6 students per class.
Virtual / Online Art Classes
For students who don’t feel they are ready to do in-studio classes, they can enroll for 1 month at a time for virtual art lessons for kids, teen and adult classes. Weekly online projects will be sent out via email and various times will be available for virtual classes using the ZOOM platform each week. Students will be able to have help from professional artist / art educator, Dixie Orriss. Options for projects will be given to students who have limited art supplies at home.
Doing the lessons by virtually is a great way to continue with art instruction, to keep in touch and stay connected.
*Students who have paid for regular classes during the covid-19 pandemic will be able to make up their lessons with in-studio classes or with virtual classes and must do so by the end of July.
What Sets Pygmalion Apart?
Pygmalion offers a wide range of art classes for kids, teens and adults from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and above. The art instruction is designed for all skill levels from beginner to portfolio preparation. The visual art educators, Dixie Orriss and Gerry Rasmussen are practicing artists who have lived, taught and “breathed” art for over 25 years. Their approach to teaching art has been to keep students engaged and entertained by creating a balance between acquiring art skills, using a variety of mediums and art forms, and by learning art history and art fundamentals.
Not everyone learns the same way and they have developed a system to work individually with each student. This approach has led to students progressing with their art at a faster rate as they express themselves and increase their powers of observation, imagination and invention.
The inspiration and knowledge that students gain at Pygmalion have allowed them to make a career with their art. Some have become 2-D and 3-D animators, illustrators, graphic artists, visual art educators and working artists. Others have used their skills for hobbies and art therapy for relaxation.
Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork.Fran Smith
