Collaborate with Laura Lynne Art & the DuPage Children’s Museum!

Art instructors or schools can purchase a set of my art instruction videos from the DuPage Children’s Museum leading to a collaborative collage project featuring native prairie plants and animals. Art teachers can assemble the art on their own or with my help. See information and pricing menu here.

Art Classes for Adults & Free Art Critique

Private 1:1 Adult Art Classes via Zoom

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.

Drawing is essential to developing most art styles and is emphasized in classes regardless of your choice of medium.

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: $65/hr + supplies, if necessary

Free! Art Critique via Zoom

Find out more information about a free monthly art critique group I co-host via Zoom. We meet the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm CST.

If you would like a 1:1 art critique via zoom, please contact me for pricing.

The Art of Seeing Details Workshop

Do you work in a field where details are key?  Are you a surgeon or a detective, perhaps?  In this workshop, you’ll learn how to notice details by studying art history and drawing.  We’ll look at examples from the book, Visual Intelligence by Amy E. Herman.  No previous drawing or art skills required.  Contact me for pricing and availability.

Pre-K and Kindergarden Art Workshops

In this 45 minute workshop, we’ll do a short process art project, an art movement exercise and end with a shadow puppet play.  Contact me for pricing and availability.

Shadow Puppet Art Workshops

In this 2-3 hour workshop, we’ll learn about monarch migration, watch shadow puppet play examples, then make butterfly shadow puppets and landscape scenery.  I’ll bring my large portable shadow puppet screen and lights to fly your butterfly and make a short shadow puppet video.  Contact me for pricing and availability.

Life Drawing Workshops

Drawing is the most important skill artists can learn.  For this 45 minute – 2 hour workshop, I bring in live flowers, shells, or fruit so that students can study from life.  We’ll watch this drawing video I made to get our confidence going and know it’s okay to make mistakes.  Contact me for pricing and availability.

The ability to think creatively is important no matter your profession. Solving problems visually and boosting the creative brain with these exercises and projects may translate into solving problems in the workplace.
