About the classes:

This three part series is a wonderful way for grown-ups and kids to spend some special time together and learn about a few artists who have influenced all of us.  Plus, it is the perfect gift any time of year to share with your family!

Each two hour class will include a presentation on the life and work of that artist, as well as the importance of that artist within the context of art history and culture.  Then, we will do our own art project based on the work of the artist we are studying.

Upon registration you will receive information by email including the materials for each class.  Then a day or two before each class you will receive the zoom link.

This series of classes is designed for all levels of artists, including beginners.  We suggest age 5 and above for paricipating children.
