The weekly online (via Zoom) art class includes a short art history lesson and learning art skills. Then then students will create their own art project related to the lesson.
The art projects will use materials that students already have on hand such as pencils, pen, colored pencils, crayons, and water color paints. The themes will cover a wide range of subjects, art movements and artists from ancient to contemporary.
Art is a necessary part of education for children of all ages and these online art classes for kids help provide this vital learning. Studies have shown that kids 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 grow up to be talented sculptors or top-notch photographers but creating and participating in art will make everyone involved happier, more creative and well rounded. Most importantly, art enriches and enlightens our lives.
Is Your Child Getting Enough Art?
Sadly, art has been cut from the curriculum of many schools and educational programs. In addition, schools that do offer art are usually not able to offer it to all students. The elementary schools in my area only offer art once a month and it is taught by a parent volunteer, which many classes simply don’t have.
Online Art Classes For Kids
The art classes I offer bridge this gap. I teach and show art that is a critical part of education, for all age levels. This is the perfect supplemental program for homeschool students and public school students alike. Whether your child needs more art than their school is offering or if art is simply not available in your institution, these classes are a great addition to every education.
I take a creative approach to my lessons. 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 everyone receives individualized attention. Everyone is welcome and valued.

Great virtual art class. History along with technique. My daughter enjoys it. Great option for homeschool or in addition to virtual learning.
Students in grades K-12 will receive individual attention in small online Zoom classes. This is a great online art class for for kids of all kinds. Homeschool students can learn and experience arts and culture studies in an in-depth program. It is also a fantastic supplemental program for public school students.
I base my lessons on the Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRS) in the Arts guidelines but also try to keep the lessons fun and interesting.
Some need based scholarships are available. Please ask.
