Get Creative in Our Art Classes
Candace Troy Studios teaches beginning and intermediate fine art drawing and painting to children and adults from age 9 and up in Pacifica, California. Classes are kept to 7 students only allowing each person quality instruction and attention. Children and adults are taught the fundamental skills or building blocks to making art. Each painting or drawing covers what was learned in the previous lesson. Repetition builds confidence. Once the understanding of the necessary skills is reached, students begin to experiment with their own expression. To see the magic and mystery of creativity, you have to have a sense of what it can do for you. Adults find relaxation and joy while in the creative process. Progress is encouraged more than technique in our art classes. Allowing yourself to learn without judging yourself is paramount. Learning to relax will move you forward.
Both children and adults are invited to experience the pride of creation by participating in a yearly art show at the San Mateo County Fair. This builds self-esteem and helps overcome shyness or hesitation in showing their work publicly. Often times throughout the year the Pacifica Community offers art competitions that also allow the youth to show their work.
