Cygnets online art courses are designed to guide students through a series of engaging and exciting projects, each covering a new subject, technique or medium. Designed for ages 6-106, they can be done by you, your child, or as a family! 


Cygnets' focus is on the teaching of traditional drawing, painting and sculpture, combined with unique projects; experienced teachers, and professional quality materials. Each online project is taught step-by-step, exactly as it would be in a Cygnets class.


Students can access the projects at any time; however many times they like, and pause/ restart when necessary. Links are accessible immediately via the downloadable document, which also includes a materials list and recommended reference image for each project.
