CHILDREN'S CLASSES

 (Ages 6-18)

 

Art Class

Oil/Acrylic Painting Class

In Oil/Acrylic Painting Class we will begin with painting basics, creating a complete work from sketching in, to value study, then painting. You will learn all you need to know to paint and care for your tools.

Watercolor Class

In Watercolor Class we will begin with painting basics, understanding technique and diving into a variety of beautiful paintings to hone your skills to paint wherever you are.

Drawing Class

In Drawing Class we will focus on technique and composition, creating a variety of pencil then colored drawings. The first week we will draw, then the following week we will color in with watercolor pencils,

I am currently a vendor for the following charters: Visions, Valley View, Vista Oaks, and Compass. If you do not see your charter listed, I would be happy to explore the possibility of partnering with them.

Home Studio location: Concord, Ca ~ near Concord High. You will be sent my address after Registration

My KVA community is amazing and I am so thankful for your patience and encouragement during this time.

 

Because of the Covid 19 changing guidelines I can only offer in-studio classes to private paying families at this time - at 50% capacity. There will be temperature checks and hand sanitization at the door, sanitization of all materials and studio. All arteests will wear a provided clear face guard held by plastic eyeglass frames, additional masks will be at the parent's discretion. All Virtual Only students will need to purchase the listed supplies, therefore the cost of classes is

now lowered to $20 per virtual class and $25 per in-studio class while the Covid 19 limitations last. 

 

 

We will be using ZOOM to have an interactive format.

Every class will have both in-class students and virtual students simultaneously. 

 

There are benefits to this model. Having all your supplies at home allows KVArteests to continue to practice and enjoy just as they do in class. For those KVArteests that tend to rely on me heavily for help have the opportunity to learn artistic independence ;). As with everything during this time, Covid19 recommendations change and as soon as is safe to do so we will return to regular studio accommodations. 

It is VERY important to use the best ART MATERIALS you can afford to learn proper technique and enjoy the experience. I have created Amazon wishlists of my favorite, most affordable materials. It is very challenging to teach virtual classes with students who have the wrong supplies, so please follow the lists as much as possible. Below each Session you will find a link to an Amazon wish list for the supplies for each class. Many of the supplies will be used for multiple sessions. If you are an "In-class/hybrid" arteest I will provide your paper and canvas for each project.

This year, in "Art through the Ages - Contemporary to Medieval", we will be studying several of the eras and artists that shaped the art world. Our fine art projects will include drawing in pencil and sharpie; scratchboard; painting in acrylic and watercolor; rendering in oil pastel, watercolor pencils, and colored pencils.
