Class experience

This class is taught in English.
Each instructor at Megapixels School of the Arts is a master of their craft and is certified to teach the Megapixels Method. This method of instruction trains students to be able to draw realistically while having the freedom to go wild with creativity and the mindsets to succeed.

We are on a mission to empower kids to become lifelong learners, who are confident in their creativity so they can overcome any obstacle, achieve their biggest dreams, and change the world.

We facilitate an inclusive learning environment. 

We encourage students to not get caught up in perfectionism but rather to enjoy the process, which further unleashes creativity.

Reviews for Gemma: 
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Hello! This is Sabrina(a student in this class), this class has been really fun for me so far and has helped me to improve my drawing skills quite a bit. Miss Gemma is always so nice and is always giving positive feedback(and if we need to change something on our drawings she always is very polite about it tells us how to fix it). Some of the drawings I have done were I little too easy and some were just a tad too hard but overall this class is just the right level for me(I’m eleven). I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who really likes animals and really likes art. Thanks for teaching this class! By the way, to show my improvement I put the first drawing I did in this class in May of 2021 and the drawing I did last Thursday(September of 2021).  

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ms.Gemma is great with the kids. She is very patient and she makes the class fun. My daughter loved her class. - P. Edwards

What if you don't have acrylics? That's okay! If you have some other type of art supplies and you know how to use it, you can substitute anything whether that be oil, watercolor, pastels, etc. However, the instructor will only be demonstrating using acrylics.
