Art Instruction

The Samara Carrier Academies of Art, Studio 1, is located in beautiful Kelowna British Columbia.
There is no previous art experience required.

The academy is based on the premise everyone in the world is an artistic genius. The reason a person does not execute that genius is because they have blocks that we can joyfully overcome.

Consider learning to draw and paint under the instruction of professional artist Samara Carrier.

Art students will learn the foundation of pencil drawing techniques and will be taught portraits and perspective in Drawing Level 1. Samara begins with an exhilarated 30 hours of instruction using proven techniques in the art of pencil drawing. Students will learn to draw portraits and perspective well, in that 30 hour time period. After students have achieved skill with pencil drawing, they move on to the next course, Drawing Level 2, which is drawing in colour and then, Drawing Level 3, which is drawing in colour on different surfaces.

Draw and paint for pleasure, for peace of mind, as a profitable hobby, or as an new art career. Our Super Learning, 30 Hour Courses are ready for you. We teach all subjects, all mediums, on any surface, for artists unlimited.
Enrolment is limited. We want to make sure art students have plenty of one on one time with Samara.

All you need is the desire to draw and paint along with your tuition, and the art supplies can be purchased on location at The Samara Carrier Academies of Art.

We can provide accommodation for out of town students, in our Total Immersion Super Learning Program.
