Art Lessons 

Multimedia Art Classes for Children

My goal is to create a stimulating and creative environment in which children explore the visual world around them through the media of graphite, colored pencils, collage, tempera, and watercolor. Instruction in drawing and painting will be given, and other artists' works appreciated. Renée is a professional artist, Montessori director/teacher for 32 years, art project leader for children 8-18 years old in 4-H, and instructor of private and group art classes for all ages.

1. Classes are $10 each per one hour class for groups of 3-6 children, paid in full at the beginning of the six week session of classes. Semi-private lessons are $15 per class, and private lessons are $30. In addition, there is a $30 materials fee due at the beginning of each session of classes.

2. Children need to be at least 5 years old. Two separate classes will be taught: one for 5-8 year olds and one for 9-12 year olds.

3. Siblings receive a 10% discount for classes taken concurrently.

4. Please call in advance if a lesson needs to be cancelled. Up to one lesson a session may be credited to the next session of classes.

5. Lessons are given on a mutually beneficial basis and can be terminated by student or teacher at any time.

Classes for Teens and Adults

Classes in beginning and intermediate drawing and watercolor painting will be given during the year in six week sessions. Small group lessons are $25 per class, semi-private lessons are $35, and private lessons are $45 per 1 1/2 hour class. Lessons are paid in full for the entire six week session of classes on the first day. One missed class per session may be made up in a future session of classes.

No previous knowledge or experience is needed to take the beginning drawing or watercolor painting class. It would be advisable to take the beginning class or have equivalent knowledge before taking an intermediate class. In drawing class, you will discover your “inner artist” through the media of graphite, charcoal, conté crayon, and pastels.

It is a good idea to have taken some kind of drawing class before taking watercolor painting. We will be exploring various watercolor techniques and subjects. A materials list will be provided before the class session begins so that you will have the materials needed to practice at home between classes.

Lessons are given on a mutually beneficial basis and can be terminated by student or teacher at any time.
