Studio Time

Discover Your Talents

Your instructor will work closely with you to identify the types of art projects that are best suited to you. Try your hand at painting, sculpture, macramé and more. You’ll learn adaptive techniques where necessary, acquiring the tools to reach your full artistic potential.

Whether your personal artwork becomes a passion, a pastime or just a memory of your HKNC experience, your new skills and appreciation will enable you to take greater pleasure in the art that surrounds you in your everyday life.

Learn Adaptive Techniques

Choose Your Medium and Learn Techniques

Whatever medium you choose, your instructor will introduce you to techniques that can enable you to work more independently.

Your instructor will show you different ways to approach challenging aspects of a project and will help you to figure out what will work best for you.

We have an array of materials that can make your work easier and enhance your sensory experience:

  • Oversized paintbrushes, needles and crochet hooks
  • Bulky yarn
  • Needle threaders
  • Portable work tables
  • Spill-proof containers
  • Air-dry clay
  • Scented markers
  • Sand, glitter and beads to texturize conventional materials

Contact your regional representative to learn more about HKNC assistance.
