Kids Summer Art Camps are here!

Kids Summer Art Camps are now registering. Find all the information on the classes page.
Class sizes are small and fill quickly!

The backyard is often the inspiration for spring art lessons. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and I had to have everyone paint them. This lesson is a great introduction to acrylic painting in an impressionist style suitable  for all ages.

Students had to mix a wide range of values to create depth in their paintings from a limited selection of colors on their pallet. Day one, students completed a base coat  with the deeper colors. Day two, students continue to paint and brighten up the canvas.

Paintings are 9x12 on canvas boards.

Summer art camps coming next week

Summer camps will be posted next week!!!!

Happy Mothers Day! If you have a child in one of my sessions, don't look at this post until monday!!!

April in my backyard is all about tulips and cherry blossoms. Students did 2 different acrylic painting projects with 2 different techniques. Students were given a limited color palette and a detailed demonstration on brush work.  Paintings are 4"x10" on heavy weight multi media paper. Each student did 2 paintings to surprise mom with on Mothers day. There were A LOT of beautiful tulips to choose from and it was hard to just pick 2 sets. A very successful project for everyone.

I have a class of younger students, I decided that I really liked their tulips as they were, so we skipped the blue background.

 I'll save the rest of the cherry blossoms for next weeks post.....
