Pigment School of Art
Pigment School of the Arts is committed to nurturing the creative spirit within each developing artist. For that playful spirit to flourish, students need freedom to explore and a reservoir of skills with which they can express themselves. At Pigment, we provide both.
Our studio classes offer multiple levels of detailed instruction in drawing, pastel, painting, sculpture, and ceramics. The students begin their artmaking journey by learning how to observe the world around them with active eyes. Then, using high-quality art media and encouraging inventiveness and spontaneity, we teach artists how to communicate their visions in unique works of art.
A Holistic Approach
Our students grow as artists and dreamers, self-assured in their ability to create. Our environment fosters self-discovery by encouraging individuals to identify and communicate their ideas through art making. We promote personal responsibility as we encourage students to persevere through challenges to produce works of their best quality. Students become involved in creating and maintaining a beautiful, peaceful environment as they learn to respect themselves, their fellow artists, and the studio as a safe, creative space.
