I am an experienced educator, offering private/small group art classes to children, in Ann Arbor, MI.
Next session begins the week of January 8th, and the schedule will be determined mid-December.
Details on Private or Small Group Classes:
Content: The content of the lessons, media choices, and projects really depend on the kids, how large of a group it is, and their interests. 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.
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.
Cost: I charge a $55 per one hour lesson for up to three students. Each additional student is $10. 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! 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 a supply-kit at the beginning of our sessions that they are responsible for taking care of and maintaining. However, I supply any items that aren’t included in that basic supply kit (such as painting paper or canvases, specialty paints that we want to explore, 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 recieve 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).
