Midlothian Art Academy in Midlothian, Virginia, is a studio focusing on classical drawing and painting instruction with an emphasis on skills based training. Visit midlothianart.academy for a complete listing of classes. All classes are held at the Midlothian Studio on Huguenot Road.


Drawing Classes

In the drawing studio you will learn the fundamentals of drawing by focusing on observational rendering, use of line, shading, and mark-making to think and draw spatially. While drawing from a variety of subjects, you’ll begin to build technical skills and develop your own personal expression. You’ll receive personal and group critiques and encouragement to facilitate growth in your drawing ability, gain knowledge and use of the elements of design, and prepare for painting or advanced drawing courses.

Fall/Winter classes start the week of November 11, 2019 and run through the week of January 24, 2020.

Painting Classes

In the painting classes we will focus on the fundamentals of painting. This class will introduce you to painting with oil, acrylic or watercolor. You will learn about appropriate substrates, mediums and brushes for each. Following the materials introduction, we will explore basic color theory as we begin to paint simple subjects.

 Advance Students will develop their talent by building confidence with the medium and substrates that they have chosen as their discipline. Students will also begin to explore composition and to assemble their independent portfolios either for specialty centers/college submissions, professional representations or just for the pure enjoyment of creating art.
