In-person classes are taught in my East Vancouver Studio in Vancouver Washington. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the private offerings.

Creative Approach

The process of creating is much more important than the finished art project. There are no right or wrong answers in art, it is about personal expression. 

I encourage my students to experiment with different materials and techniques. By listening to and closely observing where each student is at, everybody receives individualized attention. Everyone is welcome and valued.

Why Art?

Art is a necessary part of education for people of all ages and these art classes help provide this vital learning. Studies have shown that people who participate in arts have improved math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills.

Creative problem solving skills are also greatly enhanced for those who regularly practice some form of art. Believe it or not, learning visual arts can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork. 

We might not all be talented sculptors or top-notch photographers but creating and participating in art will make everyone happier, healthier, more creative and well rounded. Most importantly, art enriches and enlightens our lives. 

Are You Getting Enough Art?

Sadly, most adults don’t get enough art in their life. Art is a critical part of being human. Increasing the amount of art that you participate in can help reduce the depression and anxiety and therefor reducing symptomatic diseases. 

In addition, art has been cut from the curriculum of many schools and educational programs, so kids may not be getting enough art either. Schools that do offer art are usually not able to offer it to all students.

The elementary schools in my area only offer art only once a month. In addition, it is taught by a parent volunteer, which many classes simply don’t have. 

Enrolling in private art classes or exploring online art lessons is a great way to enrich your life and experience the creativity that is truly necessary.
