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.

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 toddler and kid 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 on request.
