Welcomes You


StuART Studio

Fun Fine Art Classes for children

4818 Stuart Avenue

Richmond, Virginia 23226


Students will explore the world of art through paintings, photographs, literature and guided hands-on projects. Lessons enhance your child's appreciation for the arts and the creative process as well as aid in the development of fine motor skills. Students will study the basic foundations of art: color, line, shape, texture and form.  They will also develop art skills using scissors, paintbrushes, clay tools, collage, glue and other techniques.

StuART Studio has been in operation since February 2010, and has enjoyed great local success.  A new studio was completed in the Fall of 2012 to accommodate ever-increasing enrollments. All classes are taught by Gwen Campbell, an experienced artist, licensed art educator, and mom. In her lively lessons, Gwen draws on her lifelong love of art, aesthetics and the creative process and engenders that love in her students.  With bachelors degrees in both art history and art education, as well as ten years of experience teaching art classes in Hanover County, Gwen easily engages your young student in a variety of colorful art experiences.  She is a ceramic artist as well, exhibiting her work in retail and art show settings throughout the region.

SUMMER IS HERE! Bring your five senses as we explore how artists are inspired by the outdoors! The smell of freshly cut grass, the feeling of sand between your toes, the bright shine of a coral seashell, the laughter of friends at the pool, and the cold, creamy, sweetness of soft-serve in a cone!  Sketch, draw, paint and collage in your very own handmade, sketchbook! Emphasis is on skill building such as; drawing from direct observation, painting from visual memory, and, of course, experimenting with mixed media and your own imagination!

All art materials will be provided and include media such as graphite, pastel, colored pencil, torn paper scraps, and watercolor.  Artwork goes home with YOU after session is completed!
