I am an experienced educator, offering private/small group art classes to children, in Ann Arbor, MI.
Next session begins in April. Register by March 12th!
Details on Private or Small Group Classes:
Content: Projects are structured with the intent of the students taking an idea and putting their own spin on it. Each child walks away with an artwork that is unique to them. A scope and sequence will be provided to families upon registration.
Scheduling: Classes run in six week sessions. When determining availability, returning students are prioritized, as are groups.
Location: For private lessons, I teach at my students’ homes. We'll need a quiet location with good lighting, a sturdy table with adequate work space, and access to a sink.
Base cost is $50 per one hour lesson, which includes up to three students.
Each additional student is $10.
After the first three students, Siblings are $10 for the first child, $5 per additional siblings.
I encourage families to create a small group of kids to reduce lesson costs, and I preference groups when scheduling–in fact, I welcome as many kids as your space will comfortably accommodate, and will cap the cost at $100 per lesson.
If you don't have a group but would like to join one, please let me know when you contact me, as well as if you could be a host. Sometimes I am able to play 'matchmaker'.
Supplies: Each student purchases their own supplies according to a provided list.
I provide a sketchbook for every student I work with, as well as any materials that aren't available from a standard art supply store (e.g., still life objects, etc.)
The supply kits can vary depending on the length of time we will spend together, as well as the media that we will be focusing on. For students signing up for six week sessions, they will receive supply lists specific to each project. However, here is the supply list I recommend for establishing a well-stocked art studio for the entire year (up to three students). If you plan on continuing with the classes, it is sometimes less costly to buy the supplies upfront and simply replace things as needed.
