Art Class: Susan's online art courses for adults.


Art Lab for Kids: Express Yourself:
52 Creative Adventures to Find Your Voice Through Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media, and Sculpture (Lab Series)

Follow-up to the best-selling Art Lab for Kids, with 52 new projects!

Art Lab for Kids: Express Yourself is a fun collection of art activities that encourage children to create freely, using their own thoughts and experiences as a guide. Young artists are encouraged to discover their style, document their thoughts, and build confidence in their unique perspective.

Each lesson asks questions and offers personal choices while encouraging diverse approaches and creative thinking. Many projects include varying examples and executions of the activity to illustrate and reinforce the open-ended nature of the labs, inspiring children to embrace and share their own voice.

We will have a book release on November 17, noon-2pm. We'll have an exhibit of the artworks from the book and light refreshments. Coinciding with the Salmon Fall Artists Mill Open Studios day, you can also visit some of the artists studios in the mill across the street.
