Teen Spirit is our weekly class designed for young people aged 12 - 16 to develop their skills, learn new techniques, and to explore their own creativity and potential. This course is suitable for participants of all levels, with inspiration and guidance provided along with the freedom and flexibility for participants to progress at their own rate and to set their own goals.
Each week we will explore a different medium such as watercolour, acrylics, oil pastels, charcoal, collaging and pencil, teaching the techniques, inspiring imaginative creations, and guiding our participants to create a collection of work they can be proud of.
It is an ongoing course, open to be joined at any point by purchasing the PIE Teens PASS (see below). It is possible of course to give it a try before making a commitment. Drop us a line, come for a class and pay by cash/card/TWINT in the studio.

What will we actually do?
The PIE approach in our classes for both kids and teenagers is to cover the basic principles of art and art history through interesting and inclusive exercises where everyone is free to have fun, learn, and experiment with art.
→ different painting and drawing mediums including acrylic paint, watercolours, graphite and colored pencil, pen, oil pastels, and charcoal!
→ besides the paintbrush we will experiment with other methods such as creating with a palette knife, sponges, fingers, and q-tips!
→ We’ll also explore other artistic forms such as collage and printing
→After every class every participant’s creation will be stored into their own individual sketchbooks, meaning that by the end of the course everyone will have their own collection of work to look back on and see their progress, style, and individuality collated in one place!
We recommend purchasing the sketchbook through us, as we have bulk buy discount. However, if you’d prefer to buy your own elsewhere we recommend the following specifications:
-Min 250g/m2 sheets
-Suitable for mixed media
What kind of stuff will we learn?
→ Learning from the greats: Incorporating a little bit of art history, these classes will look at how we can take inspiration from famous artists (Monet, Picasso, Kandinskij) or art movements (pointillism, abstract expressionism) to create our own masterpieces mimicking another’s style!
→ Putting stuff in Perspective: during these classes we’ll cover the principles of one point perspective, whilst drawing and painting urban and natural landscapes.
→ Face off: how do you draw a human face? It’s all about proportions! Here, we’ll practice drawing faces by studying the proportions and elements using a mirror.
→ Compositions: what makes a good composition… good? Beauty may be in the eye of the holder but there are certain harmonies, patterns and compositions we’re nearly all drawn to!
→ Is it a bird? Is it a plane?: In some classes we will aim to establish/strengthen basic drawing skills (e.g. draw a bird or a city by starting the drawing with simple geometrical forms like squares, circles and adding the right details)
→ Sir Mix-a-lot: Mixing paints may seem simple, but it’s so easy to only end up with 50 shades of brown. Here we will practice skills like mixing color with a palette knife, painting a value scale, and exploring how different tones complement and contrast.

PIE Teens Pass - for flexible art lessons
We dreamed of an art course, which was open enough to be joined at any point and flexible enough to fit in the calendar of a modern family without making a lot of sacrifices. Sooo here it comes—> THE PIE TEENS PASS
Howitworks: The pass contains 10 tickets which are valid for 3 months after the first ticket is used to take part in a class.
Once you have purchased the pass, right after the first class, your teen will receive a stamp collector card with the expiry date on it. At the end of every class the student will get a stamp onto the card. Once all the 10 tickets are used up, and the student wants to continue visiting the classes, you can easily purchase another Pass and the same cycle repeats itself. What is important, that all the tickets have to be used up within the validity period.
With the help of this system, you will not loose the price of the few lessons, that your teen will be unable to attend in the 3-months-period of time.
