New Children's Gallery and Studio in Tucson

Here's the new Facebook page!
And the new web site
Hello my dear students.  Guess what!?  My dream has come true and I have my very own art studio!  I would very much like for you all to come visit.  I'll be offering classes to all ages.  It will mostly be open-studio style with lots of freedom, support and inspiration!  At this point the schedule is pretty open, so find a friend or two, and name your time.  You can also schedule a birthday party for a small group, or just visit a working artist (me) in action.  Best of all, I have supper-fun, week-long, half-day summer camps in the works, so just email me for a registration form (or any questions).

Art classes 2012!

Classes will start up again January 23rd at Trinity.

Mondays at 2:45 will be the original Illustrators' Workshop lessons. Each class the students will learn several drawing or design concepts while completing a project which is fairly structured with room for freedom and creativity. We will use a variety of media. This class will carry on throughout the semester. You can pay for the classes you can come to ($10 per class). Just let me know as soon as you can.

Mondays at 3:45 will be clay classes again. Check out my facebook page Polymer Clay Bakery. or my blog to see what that's all about. Those of you who have taken clay classes are always welcome, butt here may be a lot of new students and repeated lessons.

Remember, I also do birthday parties and special events with the ever-popular clay projects.

3D Board Game Creation

Well, the squeaky wheel gets the grease!  The most requests came in for making board games this summer.  I can't tell you how much fun this is!  Truly one of my all time favorite classes.  This stretches the students' creativity and problem solving in a completely fun, encouraging, and collaborative environment.  I give each student dice, a strong game board template, and cards if they want to incorporate them.  Then we brainstorm themes and each student can choose his or her favorite.  I help each student manage the project to match his or her age and ability.  We use polymer clay to create the game pieces.  Then we design the board game, creating a world out of clay.  For example, if a student chose an underwater theme, the game pieces might be fish, and she might add a 3D coral, an underwater castle, an octopus, etc. (those who know me know I love anything to do with the ocean!)  If your child has done this before, all the better!  They are bound to have much more fun now that the concept has really sunk in.  Repetition can teach so much in art as in so many things.

Classes will be on Mondays, June 7 through July 12 (6 weeks).  There will be a 1:00 class for sure, but you can come ANY TIME on Mondays as long as you set up a class with me ahead of time.  Just pay for the days you can make it.  Come any time.  I will send supplies home with unfinished projects.

It's time to get ready for summer classes. These classes will be less academic, and all about fun, fun, fun! They will be held at Grace Community Church, unless you would like me to come to another location. I will be offering clay animation, acrylic painting, 3D board game creation, and paper collage. I'm trying to find times to accommodate everyone who is interested. Please contact me and I will find a time that works for your family. Classes are all $10 per hour. 235-8877
