“Children must live in a world of beauty, play, fairytale, music, drawing, imagination and creativity.”

-Vasily Suhomlinski

Being creative at any age is important, but especially so, when growing up.  For a child, art is like a window into their inner world helping them to discover who they are, connect to their strengths and find their vision for self-expression.

Children create in a very different way than adults do.  Their focus is more on the process than on the result. Young artists use art as a way to understand and adapt to the world they live in, so they need freedom to explore their creativity uninhibited by rules, but at some point, they want to improve.  They want to be shown how to get better results in their artwork by working with an experienced teacher.

I offer classes where children are encouraged to engage in the process of making art using all of their senses.  Students will gain experience with hands-on activities like drawing, painting, collaging, sculpting, sewing and making mosaics while working in a small group ensuring plenty of one-on-one attention.

    Mosaic Lab ~ 5:00 pm – 8 pm

    $65.00Add to Cart

    I once had the pleasure of visiting Guell Park in Barcelona where I fell in love with Antonio Gaudi’s work. His fun-filled style of using broken crockery in his mosaic creations is known as Picassiette, derived from the French term pique-assiette which literally translates into “thief of plates”.

    During this workshop participants will each create a mirror (10″ x 10″) in the Picassiette style similar to the picture above. If you have some broken plates or ceramics that have a special significance to you, please bring them with you to incorporate them into your design.

    Tools will be provided for your use and all materials are included in the price of the workshop.

    No previous experience is necessary.

    Drawing Art Lab ~ Ages 7-14 ~ Fall 2019

    $132.00Add to Cart

    This course provides young students with an exploration of basic materials and elements of drawing. We will use different drawing media such as pencils, pens, pastels and charcoal.  Young artists will learn about the elements of drawing by engaging in observational (still life objects), imaginative drawing (from their imagination) or by using the drawing prompts (photos or images).  There will be time for working independently as well as enjoying the collaboration with other students playing drawing games.

    This series of classes is great for anyone who enjoys drawing and wants to improve their hand-eye coordination and technical skills.

    Wear appropriate clothing as some media may be hard to wash off.  All materials are included.

    These classes are for students interested in exploring different paint media such as watercolours, acrylics, oil and textile paints.  Young artists will practice mixing colours while maintaining the purity of colours and controlling the amount of paint and water/meduim for better visual results. We will focus on the qualities of paint including mixing and application to surfaces.

    This series of classes is well suited for young artists with or without previous painting experience who want to have an introduction to painting media and to practice their technical skills and gain more confidence.

    Wear appropriate clothing as some media may be impossible to wash off. All materials are included.
