Summer Classes filling quickly!

If you are still on the fence you may want to make a decision.  I have only got a couple of spots left in some of the summer classes! 

I also made options for the classes that are less structured so that you can do one month or both. So for those who wanted to participate but have vacations planned you can hopefully still join us!

Just head over to the Summer Classes page to sign up!


New! Acrylic Painting classes for summer!

I have had a few kids request a painting class.  I don't want to do any that are really expensive, but acrylics are fun, fairly simple, safe and inexpensive.  I added two classes for summer.  If you click on the Summer Classes link you will see them.

Ages 9+
No previous experience required

We will work on completing some paintings in class.  The number will vary based on the student's experience and the difficulty and size of the project.

Supplies Needed:
*A basic set of acrylic paint (not craft paint, get an artist set of acrylics) we can mix our own colors as long as they have a good basic set.
*Paint brushes: various sizes, but smaller rather than larger.  Make sure they are for watercolors or acrylics.
*A brush cleaner (these are jars or tubs that you can fill with water to clean the brushes)
*a roll of paper towels
*canvas or paper (that is specifically for  acrylics- it will be thicker than regular drawing paper.)
*Palette: I use the kind that come in what looks like a drawing pad- they are just disposable papers
*a picture or collage of what you want to paint
*drawing pencil: either 2H, H, HB B, or 2B (NOT CHARCOAL!)

Rulers needed!

We are starting perspective lesson in Drawing 1 next week.  I have 12" rulers they can use.  However, if they have their own ruler that is 15-18" it would be awesome!  Perspective is really fun, and it will be a nice change of pace.  The students have done an awesome job this semester!  I hope you will consider taking summer classes so that they keep using these skills!


New TWO hour class for summer! (Get your errands done!)

I am excited to announce a new class!  My 15 year old daughter is trying to earn money for a school trip.  It is hard to find a job for a 15 year old.  So we came up with a plan that we are hoping will help both her and a bunch of the parents out there who dread errand running in the summer!

I will help her with the class, and guide it.  But she is going to be in charge of the game portion, because she has way more energy and ideas in that department! And we will work on the arts & crafts part together.

Ages 5-10
Tuesdays, 9:30-11:30am
June 7- July 26
$55 for the summer session
This is a TWO Hour class so that parents can have a break and run errands during the summer months.

This class will be fun crafts and art projects.  We will have a different project each week.
We will also incorporate some fun games and play time to make this their favorite day of the week!

We will also have snacks that are fruits or vegetables available.

All Supplies are included
(papers, paints, markers, pastels, and a box for carrying our projects home, etc.)
*You will want to have your child wear an apron or an old shirt- we tend to get our hands a little messy!

After Registration you can pay

May & Summer Classes in Sandy on hold

I have some really sad news.  I found out today that the Sandy Robert's store is closing.  So, for now we will finish classes through April.  They will be closing mid-May, so I am going to hold off on the class extensions for right now.  And summer classes are on hold as well.

If you know of a good location, similar to the Robert's classroom I would be happy to look into it.  I know Hobby Lobby and Michael's have classrooms, but I don't know how available they are or what they charge for rent.  So I am going to look into that.  Hobby Lobby would be really close to where we were in Sandy, so that is my preference at the moment.  I can also look into the South Jordan and American Fork Robert's stores. 

I am so sad about this news, both because it affects our classes and because I always liked shopping at Robert's.  I've been shopping at that store for about... forever.

If you are still interested in those class times, please still register.  That will help me know how large of a classroom  am going to need, and to let me give the new location an idea of class size as well.  Do not pay for classes yet because I don't want to take money and then need to return it!

Thank you for your patience while I sort out what to do!
