Austin Creative Art Center focuses on studio art, combining the disciplines of painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media and design concepts to emphasize creativity and skill development. Students gain technical knowledge and expertise in visual arts. The goal is to produce expressive artists of originality that will be willing to explore various ideas, values and beliefs that will contribute to contemporary art and culture.
We focus on the process of transformation, guiding students to explore various mediums and concepts that teach technical skills to inspire creativity and visual self-expression.
Our curriculum guides students through the fundamentals, elements and principles of fine art, offering lessons to encourage students to examine, evaluate and express their own stories by providing meaningful skill sets that are applicable across all academic disciplines.
BALANCING A CLASSICAL PHILOSOPHY WITH IDEA GENERATION
Students become apprentices of the masters, old and new, studying art history and contemporary artworks to find inspiration and begin their own creative journeys to uncover unique styles of expression. Students are encouraged to let their imaginations take them on visual expeditions to transform and innovate.
In the art studio fear and judgment fall away and a new kind of self-esteem emerges. Our environment is a safe place that empowers students and allows their creative abilities to grow. Honoring each other's uniqueness, allows students to ask questions, think for themselves and share what they know. Students are encouraged to collaborate with one another while respecting individuality.
