Richmond's Studio is an educational program founded and taught by artist/ art teacher Richmond Smith in 2006.  This program is
devoted to teaching students the fine arts of drawing, painting, printmaking, stained glass and sculpture.  The mission of this program is to
promote learning of the fine arts using traditional and contemporary techniques in order for the student to create their own unique artwork
through this instruction.  More than anything Richmond wants to show all students that art is something that can make them happy
throughout their entire life.  Not only can they experience this happiness through the process of creating new artwork, but each student will
come away from a class by looking at the world from a different perspective.
Types of classes:

Small group and private fine art classes for a wide variety of ages and media.

  • Children's classes (K-12):  Home school and after school art classes with no more than eight students per
    class.  From beginner to advance levels of students, classes are designed to cover a wide range of media
    from drawing, painting, printmaking, batik, stained glass, sculpture, and ceramics.

  • Adult classes:  Evening classes and weekend classes.  From beginning to advanced levels of students,
    classes specialize in teaching drawing basics and more advanced techniques of painting with the painting
    media of oil, acrylic, and watercolor as well as batik painting and screen printing.
