Introducing “Fine Art Kids – A drop-off art class”

You all. I am super pumped about my newest class offering! I have gotten a lot of questions about classes for older kids, and now I have one! 

First Sundays. From 1:30 until 2:30. At Grow in Cary. 

“Fine Art Kids” is a drop-off art class for kids ages five and up. The young artists will have an hour to work with me on a hands-on art project.

As a former k-8 Art teacher turned studio artist, and unschooling mom of three, I am adept at creating fun and engaging process art projects for kids of all ages. I believe that encouraging artistic play is crucial to child development, and that presenting kids with projects they excel at, while still being challenged, is essential to encouraging growth as an artist. I am skilled at setting up just the right materials and project parameters to facilitate the creation of beautiful, abstract art. 

For the November 5th class, the focus will be on creating modern mobiles inspired by Alexander Calder and Wassily Kandinsky. Your young artist will work with paper layering and collaging techniques to create whimsical kinetic art! Pre-registration is required, as class size is capped at 7 children. Register atleast 24 hours in advance so Jane has time to prep!  The cost is $30, all supplies are included.

You can peruse some of the youth art projects that I have facilitated on the blog.

I haven’t made all of the printing screens yet, but I can promise a triceratops, a butterfly, and a rabbit. Any other special requests?

Busy.

Y’all. I am excited/busy/a smidge tired. 

This week has been all about events. I’ve been hanging in my Studio a lot recently and this week was all about getting out and about. I have a ton of events planned here in the Triangle. There’s a trunk show with a ton of my new work happening this weekend at Oak + Co in Historic Oakwood, Raleigh. Saturday morning I teach a kids craft at Read With Me. I’ve booked the community space in the new location for Grow for toddler art classes the first weekend of the month, and adult art workshops (details coming soon) the last Friday of the month. That starts in August. Head on over to my Facebook page and click the events tab to see the details!
