Soli Deo Arts
We Teach..We Create...ART!

Classes

 

 Soli Deo Arts is offering art classes! We teach the elements of art and principles of design, along with techniques to develop and improve creative skills. While exploring a wide range of art experiences, we encourage art appreciation and incorporate art history. Students will engage in creative thinking, problem solving, self-expression – and fun!

Classes are held in 8-week sessions, but are structured as a full year with lessons building upon one another. Students are encouraged to attend all 3 sessions, though it is not necessary. Students can attend any or all of the 8-week sessions. All supplies are included in class tuition, except where there is a materials fee.

All art classes are held at the Cottingham home, 708 S Broadway, Pitman, NJ.
