Excellence and Fun Creating Fine Art


My KVA community is amazing and I am so thankful for your patience and encouragement during Covid. I offer classes both in-person and virtually through Zoom. For In-Person I ask that masks be worn to and from their seats; once seated continued wear is at your discretion. I do my best to socially distance in the classroom, and only healthy arteests are invited to stay.

Artists Class

Kids & Teens (ages 7-18)

In-Studio & Virtual

Each session, we will experiment with a new medium or mixture of mediums while focusing on the styles & history of different artists like Monet, Rousseau, Audubon, Goldsworthy, & more! This year's theme is "Art in Nature."


Drawing Class

Kids, Teens, & Adults (ages 7 & up)

In-Studio & Virtual

Arteests of all skill levels, join us as we focus on technique & composition while creating a variety of pencil & watercolor/colored pencil drawings! The first week we will draw, then the following week, we will color in with watercolor pencils.​ What we draw is up to the class! In the first week, we brainstorm ideas and combine them to draw an absolute one-of-a-kind masterpiece.




Painting Class

Kids, Teens, & Adults (ages 10 & up)

In-Studio & Virtual

We work in your choice of watercolor, oil, or acrylic to create complete works using basic to advanced techniques. Everyone creates their own unique project, so if there's something you want to paint but just don't know where to begin, this class is for you!


Creative Class

Kids & Teens (ages 5-18)

In-Studio Only

Like open studio time, I open my Concord art studio to arteests in the San Francisco Bay Area to show them techniques with several different mediums. They will have free expression to create whatever they want with supplies provided. My help and guidance is always available!




Masterpiece Mondays

Kids, Teens, & Adults (ages 5 & up)

In-Studio & Virtual

Every 2nd Monday in September through May, I offer a guided acrylic painting on canvas for students & their families both in-studio and virtually. You can drop off your student or stay and paint ;)


Watercolor Class

Kids, Teens, & Adults (ages 7 & up)

In-Studio & Virtual

A new KVA offering open to kids & adults! Kimberly will guide you step-by-step to create beautiful paintings the class selects. Geared toward the more serious pursuit of excellent watercolor technique within a fine art project, we will start the Watercolor Class when at least 4 students register.

We have sent two of our children to Kim's art classes. Their skills improved each time and came home with really fun and well-done pieces they were proud of. Kim is positive and flexible and the kids love her. Can't wait for more! ~ Mary V
Kim is an amazing teacher, she is so patient, friendly and professional. My teen son loved his class and I'm so happy for that. We started with Kim in her her studio but due to covid and because we moved out of the area we continued with classes on Zoom. Amazing teacher. ~ Carmen F
My 2 girls loved her classes. They were very happy with her instruction. We are looking forward to next sessions classes. ~ Gayle S
