Children's Art Lessons
During the school year I will be offering a quality art lesson after school, (some lessons I do obtain from Deep Space Sparkle and other sites and still other lessons are those I've made up myself). Lessons are available for drop in, the same lesson will be both Tues and Wed (so families can attend the day that works for them). I will be offering a variation in lessons to accommodate different ages. In the time allowed we will do one lesson and if the child finishes early they will be given a piece of paper for free drawing. The picture posted above is the lesson for that week.
Each lesson is $12. You can pay in person when you drop your child off (please fill out a waiver). Or you can pay on-line. At the end of art lesson you child will be given a paint splat token - they will be able to use these on future art lessons or pottery pieces. Each token is worth $1 (I am not responsible for left or lost tokens, these will be your childs responsiblity).

*this is a drop off class, so parents are not required to stay. I will need an information form filled out at the first class, in case of emergency. If you miss the first or second class of the month I'm happy to send you a prorated invoice, if your child would like to start mid-month.
I started my business only doing children's art classes/activities; it began after sharing my love art with the children of Brookside for 3 years (on a volunteer basis). That was 8 years ago!!! I still continue to bring art to Mrs. Kings' 2nd Grade but wanted to bring the children's art /activities back into my studio on a more full time basis. This year we will be doing several different activities in the after school art.
I have almost 8 years of classroom experience in providing a creative environment for children and adults to find their own creative outlet.
