ART FOR KIDS
Do you like to sketch, draw, and paint? One important skill that every aspiring artist should develop is drawing from a reference. Breaking an image or an object down into its fundamental shapes, getting those down on paper, and adding details in the right place is a super handy artistic skill that anybody can learn and every artist utilizes. So, whether you want to create works of art in a realistic style, or you simply want to make the drawings that spring from your imagination look more grounded, this class will give you plenty of opportunity to learn to draw from reference images and objects, and practice getting those pictures looking pristine!
**Each student should bring their own: Sketchbook (at least 8.5×11 — the thicker, the better), pencils, erasers, markers (brush tip preferred), pencil crayons, and sharpies.

Her classes incorporate various Latin dance styles such as Salsa, Cumbia, Reggaeton as well as Jazz and Hip Hop!  She uses Latin and World music and incorporates other genres such as Pop, and songs from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s (her fave genre is 90’s R&B!).  She loves the feeling of freedom that comes from movement and hopes students will feel that too and the joy that comes from dance and expressing yourself.

Angela loves taking and teaching group classes not only for the workout but the sense of community (not to mention the laughs!)  Her classes are for all levels of experience.  She has lived in Stonebridge with her husband and son for almost 11 years and is excited to teach in this wonderful community for the first time!
