City Center Art

City Center Art teaches young artists in grades 2 through 8 the elements of art and principles of design through individually conceived projects and student collaborations. Space One Eleven’s philosophy is to facilitate the needs of young artists on a concept by concept basis, providing an environment in which young artists can learn, create, explore, and forge their own path into the world of art.
Students work in a variety of mediums such as paint, clay, charcoal, and ink. In City Center Art each young artist will learn:


  • Drawing skills
  • Color theory
  • Conceptual thinking skills
  • Art history
  • How to formally evaluate their own artwork and the artwork of others
  • Studio maintenance

Each student will work at their own pace and improve their art making skills. Students who wish to apply to the Alabama School of Fine Arts will develop portfolios for their applications.
