Garro Studio Art - Youth Register View Cart


Classes for all experience levels:
Garro Studios provides students with the opportunity to develop their drawing and painting skills. Students are encouraged to experiment with a wide variety of materials, including charcoal, graphite, pastel, watercolor, acrylics, mixed media, clay, and oils. Traditional and new approaches to art are discussed as well as other artists’ work and methods.

Emphasis is on personal expression and creativity to allow students to develop their fine art skills. Weekly classes will cover line, perspective, composition, value, handling edges, color theory and comparative measuring through demonstrations followed by individual attention and support. Each class will begin with drawing and discussion of the tools used to achieve a careful rendering of the still life, landscape, portraits & for some classes, the figure. Students will learn to show color, light, and atmosphere in their painting. A material list will be provided.

Goals and Objectives: 
- Nurture individual self-expression and creative interests
- Expose students to a working art studio
- Teach foundational drawing and painting techniques to create realistic drawings and paintings
- Expose students to a variety of art media
- Cover elements of design

About Garro Studios
Massachusetts painter, Michelle Garro works in oil, watercolor, and pastel. Her primary subject matter includes landscapes, portraits, the figure, and still life. Her work is in private collections in the U.S. and Europe as well as corporate/institutional collections including New England Financial, and Josiah Haynes School.

She has studied at the Decordova Museum School, The Museum of Fine Arts Museum School, and with Spanish painter Francisco Castillo. The artist has continued to explore new painting approaches with Boston School painter Mary Minifie, Todd Casey, and renowned New England painters Joseph McGurl, Robert Cormier, and Cynthia Packard.

Note to Students and Parents from Michelle Garro
  • Smocks are strongly encouraged. We get very messy and some of the materials stain clothing!
  • Students may bring water bottles to the studio but please encourage your child to finish snacks prior to entering the studio.
  • All students are entitled to feel safe and comfortable in the studio. Students are expected to be respectful and considerate of their classmates and instructors. In the event that a student is unable to meet this expectation, his or her parents will be called and instructed to pick up their child.
  • Due to space constraints we cannot accommodate having siblings and parents accompany students to class. I would be happy to discuss other accommodations to ensure a successful art experience for your child.
