 Art Classes for Kids and Adults

Private 1:1 Adult Art Classes in my Studio at Water Street Studios, Batavia, IL

Develop your unique artistic style with the help of one-on-one professional art instruction.  We will work together to see where you are in your artistic journey and what direction you’d like to take your art.  One-on-one art instruction offers the time and attention to your personal art practice and techniques to bring your art to the next level.

I am proficient in watercolors, oil pastels, pastels, acrylic painting, collage, gouache, Adobe Premiere Pro basics, and can offer advice on photographic works using the elements and principles of design and Photoshop.  I also have an oil painting background, however, am adverse to the fumes.

Fee:  $40/hr + supplies, if necessary

Private Virtual 1:1 Adult Art Classes via Zoom

This art instruction works the same way as the in-person art classes only via Zoom.  It helps if you have two cameras:  an overhead camera, or phone on your art, plus another camera on you, but isn’t a requirement.

Fee: $40/hr + supplies and shipping, if necessary

Kids Art Classes via Zoom

Would you like small art class for your kids and/or their friends?  Let me know what they’d like to learn and I will develop a program just for you!  This is perfect for homeschooled children, preschool kids with their adult helpers, or your young artist who would like after school or summer art instruction.

$40/hr for up to 3 kids, $10/additional child up to 6 total + supplies and shipping, if necessary
