The Parker Visual Art Studio will offer Parker students (Div 1-3) the opportunity to have dedicated studio art time with direct instruction and coaching. During this dedicated studio time, students of all experience levels will be coached to build visual art skills guided by their own their own personal interests and goals. Participants may choose to work on developing a portfolio for applying to colleges and art shows, or simply explore a new medium. Please find more details below.
