Our summer art lessons are taught by Rachel Harvey a certified teacher and artist. She will motivate you to find your inner artist, teach techniques so you can get the best out of our materials, and provide support as you explore what you can do. There will be times where all students are together for lessons, mini workshops on certain skills you can opt in or out of during the session and plenty of time for you to just go for it. The goal of each art lesson is to learn some skills related to the genre and materials, practice in a supportive environment, then finish up with a small masterpiece of your own creation. We believe that art brings people together irrespective of age or ability, there is much we can learn from each other in a supportive environment.
