Contemporary Art for Teenagers at The Pearl

Join us as we explore visual arts for the 21st century! In this contemporary art class, students are encouraged to embrace the unique experience of being creative teenagers in the 2020s.


About The Class: Contemporary Art Class for Teenagers

From digital illustration to graphic design to painting and sketching, we help students learn the art skills that they want to know. Whether they have dreams of animation or are just looking to explore their creative side, we help students pursue art without judgment and respect the new styles of art brought to us by youth culture and the internet.

Our contemporary art class is facilitated by Marciana Romero and Brittaney Drake. Marciana is a graphic designer, photographer, and content creator. She studied design at Cornish College of the Arts and graduated with a BA in Film from the University of South Wales. Brittaney is a freelance illustrator with a focus on ornithology. She has a BA from Cornish College of the Arts in design and a MA in illustration from Aalto University. Additionally, many of our classes will be taught as workshops by artists who are currently creatives in their fields.

This course meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 – 3 pm U.S. Central time starting Sept. 9th.

How does it work?

We teach our classes online, using Zoom, and they are open worldwide! Homeschool students who take classes at the Pearl are eligible to earn a WASC-Accredited US high school diploma. Even homeschool students who attend The Pearl from outside the US are still eligible to receive a US diploma. This makes the Pearl an excellent option for students who struggle in mainstream education.

The Pearl utilizes democratic education, meaning students are self-directed and learn through the lens of the things they are passionate about.

As always, students can enroll for one, several, or all of our online classes as part of a complete education. Schedule a free consultation with our founder to see if The Pearl Remote Democratic High School is right for your family!
