JewelzArt instructor Julie Lamin used to head the TeenzArt drawing program, but has shifted gears to accommodate student requests for a course in jewelry making. Students learn specific jewelry-making techniques, while adapting their own cultural flair to it. In addition to glass painting and jewelry wire manipulation, students build skills in mathematical and sequential concepts, planning, hand/eye coordination and, of course, creativity.
TeenzArt provides progressive drawing lessons mixed with some 2D and 3D projects using professional art media and techniques. With a mix of guided instruction and open creativity, students are able to break through the fear of drawing and creative expression. TeenzArt emphasizes that all students can draw and be creative.
