STAA is committed to providing an ambitious, multi-media educational program for artists of all ages. STAA’s faculty is comprised of working artists, current or former art educators at the high school or university level, and visiting Artists-in-Residence from around the U.S.A. Instructors are rigorously vetted to ensure students receive the highest quality art instruction in the classical tradition of mentorship, providing guidance in studio art production and critique.
Three youth art camps are held throughout the year: Easter Art Camp each spring, Summer Art Camp in June, Theater Camp in July, and special workshops throughout the year. We also host Talented Art Exhibitions to showcase the talent of the region and teach young artists about the many facets of exhibiting and selling their work.

Above & Below: Oil Pastel & Composition with Robin Games
Mondays: November 3, 10, 17, 24
TIME: 4:00 - 6:00pm
AGES: Jr High and High School
It’s a classic story of good and evil, right and wrong, up and down captured in a single rectangle! Learn how to use the funny looking, short, and kind of messy medium of oil pastels! Did I mention they were cheap and offer great color without a paint brush? We’ll be working with the three C’s – Color, Composition and Content. Technique is the thing, color mixing and layering to create bold beautiful color to bring your thoughts to paper. Four weeks = eight hours to having a handle on a new medium.
