In the nursery

We will be creating modern mobiles. These beauties would be perfect in a nursery, and are chic enough to work in a living space. (We have ours hanging in our guest room window.)

You can register for the class here, and read more about the workshops here.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Art Workshop // Cary NC

Art class workshop in Cary with Jane Cheek

I am so excited to be offering art workshops for adults at Grow! These classes will be geared towards decor for the family home, and will be process driven, open ended, decorative projects. Projects will vary from class to class. You can check the schedule or my blog for details on each class. No prior experience is needed, only the desire to be creative.

I will be hosting these workshops during Cary’s Art Crawl on the final Friday evening of each month. The cost to attend is $40 per person, and includes all supplies. You are invited to bring any refreshments you may want. The workshop will last about two hours and starts at 7pm. At the end of the workshop you will have a masterpiece of your own creation to take home. 

Walk-ins are welcome, however, pre-registration is recommended as class size is limited.

 

Welcome!


Hi! I am a mixed media artist who finds inspiration in nature. I love exploring color theory and working with metallic accents. I enjoy exploring both form and feeling through modern abstract expressionism with occasional nods to pop art and fauvism.

Once upon a time, I graduated from North Carolina State University with a BA in Visual Arts Applications. I taught art at a k-8 charter school in Durham for five years before deciding to stay home with my kids. Over the years I have shown my work at a variety of fairs and festivals, including ArtCon in Dallas, TX, the Fun Fourth Festival in Greensboro, NC, and the Autumn Arts Festival in Wake Forest, NC. 

I am currently a member of VAE. I now spend my days unschooling our three sons and working in my home studio. I also teach kid + caregiver classes at Grow, in Cary. My pet project, #freeartfridayrdu, is one way that I try to make the world a little more joyful, one free artwork at a time. 

My art is available locally, in Raleigh at several shops and online, via Etsy.
