Impressionism is one of the most beloved and recognized periods of art, and my Monday Kids' Class will be exploring some of the artists, use of light, color and movement, gardens, landscapes and people painted and drawn during this period of art history. If you have an enthusiastic young artist in grades 2 - 6, I believe they will enjoy, learn, and grow during this six week program.
Classes are held at my studio in Summit Artspace on Tusc, 571 W. Tuscarawas Ave., Barberton, Ohio
We meet on six Mondays, beginning January 8, from 6 - 7 p.m. All materials are provided. The group is kept small to provide individual attention and support. The cost for this course is $90.
I can't wait to share the beauty of the Impressionists, along with how ground breaking their practices were (even though they are so accepted and appreciated today!)

It's been unusually quiet around here.
You might be wondering where have I been.
This Spring I worked for several months with adults with developmental disabilities. They were doing creative work and learning some workplace skills. It was rewarding. I also had a kids' art class, a few art fundraisers and painting parties, yoga classes, and various other students. But the trade off was that I had very little time and energy for my own creating.
I've had so many ideas brewing, but no time to manifest them.
Fast forward to summer, and a new direction.
Sam and I will be spending the summer in Lakeside, Ohio. I will be working at the scrumptious shop, Miss Mercedes. Sam will be more of a free range kid. We both have projects to keep us creating and learning!
I have a few events brewing for summer, too.
July 14 Barberton Summer Art Mart, 10 a.m. on W. Tuscarawas Ave., Barberton, OH
July 20 - 22 Lakeside Plein Air Festival, Lakeside, OH
I am so excited to make this offering! I am hosting a workshop that is a bit yoga and mindfulness, a bit art and creativity, and a bit ritual, goal setting, journaling and visioning the future in a gentle space with friends old and new. Basically all of my favorites!
We will say farewell to the past year, and prepare to greet the new year with optimistic hope and a plan for be our best selves.
We will accomplish these goals by. . .
relaxing with some breathing, gentle stretching, and visualizing
decorating a journal
writing to a few prompts and webbing a plan
sipping tea and munching some treats
enjoying a warm space with open minded friends old and new
Does this sound like something for you? Would you like to attend and gift the experience to a friend? (This makes a great holiday or new year gift!!)
Here is how pricing works;
I want everyone who feels a tug toward this experience to be able to attend!
I suggest paying $30 for this lovely evening (which is such a bargain!)
