Dicen que la mejor manera de conocer a alguien es a través de su arte, ya que es una representación de su energía interior. En esta clase descubrirás tu esencia interior y aprenderemos las distintas técnicas y maneras de expresarla de manera acertada. Aprenderás como crear colores, tonos y como aplicarlos de la manera que necesites a cada paso del proceso creativo. También aprenderás como escucharte e identificar las sensaciones que generan la creación de formas tanto, conocidas como desconocidas, es decir, tus propias formas.
They say that the best way to get to know a person is by their art; since it is a representation of the inner energy of every person. In our class we will discover your inner essence and we will learn different techniques and ways to express it accurately. You’ll learn how to create colors, tones and how to apply them the way you require at every step of the creative process.

About The Pearl Remote Democratic High School
All of our teachers are experts in their fields, and welcome students with all learning styles and abilities! Teens can take all of our classes, a few, or just one. Because The Pearl is Democratic High School, our classes follow a self-directed work style where students get control of their education. Additionally, we cap our classes at 10 students, so everyone gets the support they need.
Our curriculum is made up of hybrid-homeschooling classes for teens. This means that families who are already homeschoolers can supplement the education they provide with classes from experts to insure that your child gets the best education they can receive.
We teach our classes online, using Zoom, and they are open worldwide! Students that work directly with The Pearl are eligible to work towards a WASC-Accredited US high school diploma. This makes the Pearl an excellent option for students who struggle in mainstream education. Additionally, students who attend The Pearl from outside the US are still eligible to receive a US diploma.
