Free PrintMaking for Kids Workshop – June 18-20, 2021

During Art deTour, I will host a beginner printmaking workshop at no cost thanks to a MSAB grant and donations from Cardboard Cares! Kids will learn a simple printmaking process and explore creating lines and textures in their print designs. Kids can also pick up a free watercolor kit while supplies last to go along with beginner watercolor videos that I will start posting here soon. The printmaking workshop will take about 20-30 minutes to allow time for kids to complete their projects. I have room for about 4-5 students working on different stages of the printmaking process at one time under the canopy. Thank you for patience and enjoy the art inside my studio while you wait for your turn. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Something that started out as a “Blue Sky” brainstorming session is starting to take real shape. KraftED is my mobile art classroom! I am in the beginning stages of designing art projects that kids and kids-at-heart can create for little to no cost thanks to a MSAB grant and community support. I will also post video links on this page so you can keep creating at home and whenever your schedule works best for you! If you would like to be notified, sign up below and put in the message that you want updates on KraftED classes and videos!

KraftED Open Studio is another in progress option for gaining visual art instruction. Whether you are just starting out or looking to improve specific skills, consider signing up one of my Open Studio times this summer. After a short demo/lesson of my choosing in a drawing medium, watercolor, or oil, you are free to work on your own project at your own pace or from a still life in my studio. I will be on hand to answer any questions, demonstrate various techniques, or help you reflect on your progress. The purpose is to provide in the moment, individualized instruction when you need it most and give you a place to work free from distractions and supportive of your artistic goals. Sign up will be on this page once the schedule is determined.

I am also available for private small group studio or plein air workshops, kids art classes, and youth 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!
