A “Blue Sky” brainstorming session has evolved into KraftED – my studio, mobile, and online art classroom! I am producing free art projects and lessons for kids to create thanks to a MSAB grant and community support through Cardboard Cares donations. Sign up below and put in the message that you want updates on KraftED in-person classes. The video link button below will take you to my YouTube channel so you can make art and learn at home whenever your schedule works best for you! Simply subscribe to my YouTube channel to make it easy to find and receive notifications when new art lesson videos are available!

If you live in the Alexandria, MN area, I still have some free watercolor kits for kids left. Please send me a message if you have kids who need art supplies to go along with the videos so we can get these kits into the hands of young artists!

KraftED Open Studio

KraftED Open Studio is a new option for adult students to gain visual art instruction. Whether you are just starting out or looking to improve specific skills, consider enrolling in my Open Studio times on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8:30pm this August.

After a short demo/lesson of my choosing (based on my observations and input from students) in a drawing medium, watercolor, or water mixable oil, you are free to work on your own project or from a still life in my studio in the medium of your choice. I will be on hand to answer any questions, demonstrate or explain various techniques, or help you reflect on your progress. The purpose is to provide in the moment, individualized instruction when you need it most, space to work, and a supportive environment for your artistic goals. I have room and supplies for up to 5 students at a time so you will truly get individualized instruction.

Open Studio cost is $30 per session if you bring your own supplies, or $45 if you use the supplies I provide. I have watercolor, water mixable oil, and a variety of drawing materials available. You are welcome to bring the medium of your choice even if it is not one I listed. If you bring your own supplies, please be mindful of your materials as to not fill the studio space with noxious fumes. Sign up for all 5 Tuesdays in August or just the ones that fit your schedule. Registration NOW OPEN! After submitting the registration form below I will send you an invoice to be paid prior to class.

Private Group or Individual Classes

I am also available for private small group studio or plein air workshops, kids art classes, and youth/teen mentorship! Sign up below for updates on new workshops or drop me a message letting me know what kind of classes you would be interested in taking!
