Flexible classes to fit your needs

It's that time of year again for school to start. Sign up now for classes.

After school programs, home school programs

Your child will learn new art techniques, explore many crafts and have fun while doing so.

 Classes for ages 5 - 15.
 All classes are 6 weeks long.
 Class sizes are 1 - 8 students.

I don't have a formal schedule. My schedule is flexible. What that means is I do the classes according to your schedule if possible. I do my best to accommodate your needs. It is best to contact me so we can work together to find a day and time that works for you.  

Sometimes there may be only one student in the class or several students to a class it all depends on the needs of parents. Many parents will work with other parents to have a small group for a class.

You can choose between a one hour class or a one hour and half class. Usually ages 5 - 11 are one hour classes and the 12 - 15 age group are and hour and a half. But I am flexible and make exceptions depending on the student or group. 

One hour class for six weeks $130.00 material cost included

One and a half hour class for six weeks $160.00 material cost included

We worked on watercolor techniques and did a basic color block. These are nicely done.

Acrylic Skins

Acrylic skins are made with dried acrylic paint, then cut into pieces and turned into a mosiac.

Glitter Slime

Here is a great fun thing to do with the kiddos this summer, it is super fun and easy and doesn't make a big mess. It also can provide hours of entertainment! Glitter Slime!!

1 Elmer’s Glitter Glue 6 oz
1 Cup Water
1 tsp. Borax
1 Tb Water

Mix 1 tsp. Borax and 1 Cup water together.
You can find the Borax at your local stores in the Laundry section.

empty the Glitter Glue into a bowl.
Add 1 TB. Water to the glue and mix it together.
This will help the glue to become a little more flexible.

Then pour the Borax mixture inside of the bowl.
combine the glue and the mixture together with your hands

Right away you will see how the Glitter Slime will start to form.

TIP: Don’t throw the extra Borax mixture yet.If the slime gets too slimy you can put it back inside and it will harden some more. The longer you leave the slime in the borax mixture the firmer it gets.

Store in an airtight jar.
