Classes

Class sign up is available. You can access and pay for the coarse through these links. There will be 13 lessons for the fall semester. Lessons will be added weekly. Elementary aged students start with learning the 7 elements of art and add on principles of art in the older grades. Technique, style and various artists will be studied throughout the semester.

*A note about supplies-if you do not have the supplies on the list you can substitute for something you do have on hand. Typically these items are going to last them for years (except for the consumable items like paper). I have the same watercolor palette since college so they really will last throughout their art endeavors!
