Young Masters Afterschool Program

In keeping with traditional Academic practices that date to the Renaissance period, the Lyme Academy’s Young Masters Afterschool Program provides students ages 12 and up with one-on-one instruction in observational drawing, painting, and sculpture. Students are guided through a progression of skill-building assignments created to engage and challenge, while also growing confidence and ability. Working in an inspiring and professional studio environment, students follow a year-long drawing curriculum before moving on to a second year of painting or sculpture. Each student will progress through the Program at their own pace, suitable to their skill level.

The Young Masters Afterschool Program is offered over two semesters each year, and is designed to follow the Region 18 K-12 academic calendar. The Fall and Spring semester sessions meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5 pm. Students can opt for one or two Program days per week, and can join at any time, subject to space availability.
