Art Instruction

The experience of creativity is rewarding! 

Just search the internet and you'll find list after list of the benefits creativity brings to your life. 

Here are a few of my favorites:

FREEDOM - There is no right or wrong way to be an artist. When we create, we are given the opportunity to engage with the world without judging ourselves. We have permission to take risks, try new things, and strip away inhibitions in a healthy way.

STRESS RELIEF - Making art is meditative. Taking the time to use our hands, minds, and energy doing something we love is of utmost importance in life. Being creative makes us happy. Creativity is really another form of play, and play is universally important to each individual’s sense of joy and well-being. Art is FUN, and doing anything that brings joy reduces our stress levels and improves our quality of life. What could be more important than that?

SELF AWARENESS & EXPRESSION - Creativity is the route to authenticity. As we create, we plumb the depths of our being, accessing what we think and believe. The more we create, the more we discover  and realize our habits, impulses, and desires. When we take the time and energy to develop our own ideas, we respect our inner nature and are better able to express ourselves to the world on a regular basis.  Creativity allows self-discovery, as well as the opportunity to share a hidden side of ourselves. 

CONNECT WITH YOUR COMMUNITY - When we create, we connect to other people doing the same and an instant sense of community is formed. Whether we're exchanging ideas, providing feedback for our peers, or simply creating next to in silence, the sense of connection experienced as artists is undeniable and deeply rewarding. A creative focus can help you find your community and feel less alone in the world.

I offer workshops, one-on-one and group instruction in a variety of topics. Most instruction is geared for teens and adults but it can be modified for younger children too. I instruct from my home studio and/or on location. I have on-the-job experience with special needs children and have done art projects with special needs groups and individuals through Noble of Indiana, Outside The Box and Best Buddies of Indiana. I also present workshops and demonstrations for art clubs, libraries, schools and other groups. Dates, times and cost for instruction vary according to content and group size. Additional fee may be required for locations other than my studio. Feel free to contact me for more information or with specific requests.

READY TO UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVITY? 

Due to the ever-present Covid-19 virus I have updated my class offerings below. You will see that instead of individual participant pricing there is now a "class for two" option listed (with the ability to add a third & fourth to your group). Round up a person (or two or three) that are in you feel comfortable sharing space with and sign up as a group. As of October 2021 four participants will be the max until further notice, giving us adequate room for social distancing in the studio. I've also left the time options flexible for each date so that you can select whatever time works best for your group, please add that information when you sign up. Descriptions of current classes are listed below, I am not teaching on location at this time. The class listings include discounted pricing for multiple participants - safety & savings!! 

Once the class is set I will remove the date/time from the website so that date is reserved just for you and your circle!

Prefer to take one of these classes without your buddies? We can make that happen! Sign up via the "One-on-One" Instruction option below the class listings.
