Skillful Sketchers Programs

Our new Skillful Sketchers program is an expansion from our St. James Town programs. Skillful Sketchers offers virtual classes to youth interested in building their art skills. These classes are intended for youth who live outside of our St. James Town catchment area.

Classes are offered as courses that focus on a specific medium and theme of study. We began 2021 with classes focused nature drawings to teach students fundamentals of drawing, giving our students the foundation and confidence to pursue increasingly advanced techniques. Each class breaks down complex skills through simple exercises. Classes begin with warm-ups and then focus on completing a short project.

For full details about class content and pricing, read descriptions below. All proceeds from Skillful Sketchers go directly to supporting our St. James Town program – a free after-school and summer camp program for the children of St. James Town. Check back for more courses in the fall!
