Do you ever wonder where famous artists find their inspirations? In this ongoing club we will explore the world of famous artists. This ongoing class covers a diverse group of artists and a wide range of time periods. Each week there will be a one new art project that we will create in the style of the featured artist. Students will have fun learning about artists and creating their own inspired drawing or painting. I also love to share stories and facts from the artists' lives. After a...
This class is taught in English.
-Students will become familiar with the art and style of a wide variety of famous artists. -Students will explore the elements of art through both investigating masterpieces and creating their own artworks. -Students will gain a exposure to essential art techniques and vocabulary. Instruction on techniques will vary from week to week. There will not be a separate lesson on techniques. Techniques and vocabulary taught may include but are not limited to: landscape, seascape, foreground, background, still life, horizon line, pattern, cross hatch, watercolor resist, shading with crayon, overlapping, composition, texture and scale. ~This class is for budding artists who know that art isn't about making an exact replica of the teacher's art piece. ~Due to the variety of skill sets in the class, I try to pace the class to meet all students' needs, but this isn't always possible.
I have a teaching credential in Art and a Masters in Education. I have taught elementary art for over 20 years and each of my lessons is developed thoughtfully and practiced ahead of time keeping in mind student skill level. I am passionate about helping young artists find their unique artistic voices, and therefore I balance guided drawing with creative expression in this lesson. I aim to provide positive encouragement to students throughout our class time, and truly hope they enjoy our art projects each week!
No homework but students may want to spend a few minutes after class finishing up.

This is class is direct instruction with some room for free expression. I do not require participation in discussions; they can choose to participate as much or as little as they desire. Students are also free to ask questions and make comments at any point. Some of my classes are very talkative and some of my classes are really quiet. It really depends on the dynamic of the group. I don’t force learners to “follow along”, however, many of my learners appreciate the structure my lessons provide. Ultimately, it’s up to your learner to decide exactly how they want their art to turn out. This class is geared towards beginners, however, intermediate students are welcome!
