P.B. Picasso's Fine Art Classes for Children are focused on teaching the artist ages 5 to 12 good foundational drawing skills. This atelier style program uses a step by step process that was used by the masters.
Our focus is on teaching the art learner the technical "how" of drawing and painting. Each person is taught one on one in a group setting and their progress is measured by their individual ability and speed. We start with drawing and our first medium at the child level is pastel. We use this medium because it it so versatile, forgiving and fun. The art learner is also taught the use of color, value and detail that will start in an illustrative style and set the stage for more realistic paintings as they progress. All of this is done in a fun, clean, and safe place where everyone is encouraged to create their own special art piece.
P.B. Picasso's Fine Art Classes for Teens are focused on teaching the artist ages13-18 good foundational drawing skills. This atelier style program uses a step by step process that was used by the masters.
Our focus is on teaching the art learner the technical "how" of drawing and painting. Each person is taught one on one in a group setting and their progress is measured by their individual ability and speed . Teens are started by learning how to see the world as a puzzle and learning the shapes and lines that make that puzzle whole. The teen learner is also taught the use of color, value and detail that will start in a realistic style, learning to draw what is seen. There are a diverse amount of interests and we do our best to make sure our teen artists are able to grow and improve their art skills in fun and challenging ways. Often the greatest lesson is that we can do hard things with desire and practice. We encourage individual style and sketchbook work at home and sharing in a safe and constructive manner. Our teen students go on to Cal Arts, Otis and SCAD for further art education.
P.B. Picasso's Fine Art Classes for Adults
This class is focused on teaching adults the skills needed to enjoy drawing and painting. Whether you are brand new to art or returning to it after some time away, this is a class that will teach and encourage you to grow in your art. The main foundation is drawing because we believe that strong drawing skills enhance painting skills. In our adult classes the learner is able to choose their medium of choice:
Color Pencil/ Ink/ Marker
Art is a great way to relax and create something beautiful and we will help guide you in your art journey.
We believe anyone can learn to draw and paint it's never too late.
Picasso's Playmates Parent Participation Class Age 2-5
This class is for our youngest artists. It is offered through the
City of Santa Clarita Seasons Magazine
This class is an experiential art class for the younger age group where we explore painting, glue, and 3d art projects based on a weekly theme.
This is a child directed open ended art class where we make a mess, have a great time, make beautiful Picasso style art and get creative.
Each class starts with Play Doh to warm up then we jump into our art projects. There is no right or wrong way to do these art projects and the themes change throughout the year so if you take multiple sessions you wont see the same projects over and over. We get to wash in our own bucket of soapy water and watch the train go by daily. You can register for this class through the city at:
