For the Mitchell School of Fine Arts, artistic literacy is an intrinsic part of life’s curriculum. Our goal is to foster a lasting creative approach to life in and outside the studio by sharing our passion for the foundational elements of artistic expression. We are committed to enriching the lives and communities of the greater Baltimore area by cultivating our students’ knowledge, skill and enthusiasm for expressing themselves through traditional visual forms.
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Classes typically begin with a guided lesson that breaks down a specific technical element of artistic expression. After a lesson, students are provided with individual instruction as they continue to work on the day’s lesson or work on a project of their design. Courses are designed to embolden the student’s confidence in their ability to make those first marks and channel their creative energy into the creation of dynamic works of art.
