Building Blocks of Art Video

I have the wonderful privilege of teaching art to gifted young people through Gifted Homeschoolers Forum Online. What joy I experience as these students learn new concepts and apply them to their individual expressions in the world! Their growth and enthusiasm encourage me to continue teaching and to continue my own creating.

Here's a video of my students' most recent art show, for the class Building Blocks of Art which I taught this past Spring (many thanks to Carissa Leventis-Cox for creating this video from our online slideshow presentation!):

If you have a gifted young student who is a budding artist, please check out my upcoming online art classes. This Summer I will teach Watercolor Summer Fun, and this Fall I will teach Faces and Figure Drawing. Please click on the links for more information and to register your student.

Watercolor Summer Fun Art Class

Summer. Swimming pools and beaches. Profusions of flowers. Water and color.  And summer is a perfect time for letting water and color flow together in watercolor paints. Watercolor is a refreshing medium with the ease and fluidity reflective of the season. Perfect for taking on the road, whether for a day trip or a longer vacation, watercolors give artists the opportunity to dip their brushes into water and paint and express themselves freely, vibrantly, flowingly on paper.

This summer, I have the opportunity to encourage young artists to discover the joy and freedom of painting with watercolors. Starting Monday, June 6, I will be teaching Watercolor Summer Fun, an art class through Gifted Homeschoolers Forum Online. We will explore techniques for painting in this medium as well as using it to create summer scenes. I will teach the class online on Mondays and Wednesdays at 11:15 a.m. Pacific Time from June 6 to July 20, 2016.

Do you have a gifted youngster, eight or older, who might like to explore watercolor this summer in a relaxed, fun class? If so, please click on this link to register and to find out more about the class: Watercolor Summer Fun--Summer 2016. I hope to see your student there!
