Learn About Modigliani – Teen Virtual Art Class – Portraits and Pastels

September 19 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Join us virtually as we learn about the artist Modigliani including life history, art and lasting inspiration.  We will be making portraits in the same style as the artist using oil pastels.  

You can learn more about this artist on Wikipedia here: Amedeo Clemente Modigliani (Italian pronunciation: [ameˈdɛːo modiʎˈʎaːni]; 12 July 1884 – 24 January 1920) was an Italian Jewish painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. He is known for portraits and nudes in a modern style characterized by a surreal elongation of faces, necks, and figures that were not received well during his lifetime but later found acceptance. Modigliani spent his youth in Italy, where he studied the art of antiquity and the Renaissance. In 1906 he moved to Paris, where he came into contact with such artists as Pablo Picasso and Constantin Brâncuși. By 1912 Modigliani was exhibiting highly stylized sculptures with Cubists of the Section d’Or group at the Salon d’Automne.

We will first go over the history and background of what we are creating!  Then we will have a few opportunities to engage in some interactive conversations and questions and finally we will complete our project together.  We will also incorporate several literature pieces into the art lesson.

Suggested Age:  12+

Our virtual classes are limited to small class sizes so that children and the instructor can engage together.  We will have opportunity to engage in questions and conversation while still maintaining a structured learning session.  We will also be on integrating STEM, English Language Arts and History whenever possible and relevant.  We will also focus on learning an art or craft skill while touching on some of these topics within the session, as time permits.

If you feel that your children need help with the technology (ZOOM), please be within arms reach to assist them so it is not distracting for me and the other children to try and figure out 2nd hand how to help your child manage their ZOOM on their screen.  In light of our current times it seems that everyone is a Zoom expert!

Classes are conducted on the ZOOM platform.  We have changed our classes to require pre-registration on the platform for the class (you will get an email to pre-register after you sign up for the class) as well as a password and special login link.

If you are having any issues with logging in, signing up or questions with supplies – please send us a text to our central customer line at (920) 474-5444. This number is maintained by our entire team of teachers and store employees and you should get an answer as soon as we are able.

Supplies Needed:

  • 12×18 inches Watercolor Paper
  • Oil Pastels


Virtually classes are LIVE events.  So that means you will need to be present for the class at the time it is scheduled in order to get the full class experience.  While participating in the class you can ask questions, socialize, and enjoy the company of new and old friends.  We can also schedule you a private party!  We are now offering Virtual Bridal Showers, Virtual Birthday Parties, and Virtual Classroom Parties!

**LIMITED SPACE due to the scope of this class and the attention given to each individual to ensure success and fun!

**Class size is limited in order to have a social atmosphere!  WE ARE NOW LIMITING CLASSES TO 5 so we can create the community and conversation we have always strived for in our in-person classes!  

**Classes will meet on Zoom.  The link will be sent with your confirmation email for the class. Please note that when you purchase your ticket that it is possible to exchange your ticket for another event if you have to cancel, however, due to our small business studio pre-ordering and the preparation for materials for you in advance we cannot offer refunds. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
