Class Information

Creative Approach

In-person, on-demand as well as private art classes are available! 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, everybody receives individualized attention. Everyone is welcome and valued.

Classes are available online or in person in my dedicated art studio.

Why Art?

Art is a necessary part of education for people of all ages and these private online 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 involved happier, 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 once a month and it is taught by a parent volunteer, which many classes simply don’t have.

For adults or kids

The art classes I offer bridge this gap. I teach and show art that is a critical part of education and life, for all age levels. This is the perfect supplemental program for adults and kids alike. Whether you or your child needs more art than what is currently available, these classes are a great addition to every education and lifestyle.

Practice art skills, explore new art materials and be creative. Expert instruction and focused hands on study. All skill levels and ages welcome.

Explore the art skills and materials that you want to learn at your own pace. Investigate your choice of painting, drawing or mixed media. I am well versed in teaching watercolor, acrylic, oil paint, pencil, charcoal and much more. Styles range from classic to contemporary.
