"DRAWING IS NOT THE FORM; IT IS THE WAY OF SEEING THE FORM." - EDGAR DEGAS

Private Lessons:  available to "children" of all ages - from 3-93!   In order to meet you where you're at and in what you would like to learn, I have grouped lessons into basic classes.  This offers a comprehensive education for all aspiring artists. Be sure to check out the entire PH Studios schedule for  lots of "How-to" classes and short workshops!

WATERCOLOR:  (All ages)

Watercolors NOTORIOUSLY misbehave.  Learn the basics of this beautiful medium, with weekly lessons that build upon each other.  In no time, you will find that you enjoy the unpredictability of the medium!  Topics include:

Color theory

Brushes and paper

Glazing

Masking

Color application

Texture

Structures

Figures

Nature

ACRYLIC PAINTING:  (All ages)

I’ve found that using acrylics is the simplest, most effective way for an absolute beginner to learn how to paint successfully. No medium offers such flexibility and ease of use, it is a MUST TRY for painters- no matter what your skill level! Topics include:

Color

Techniques

Supplies

Figures

Nature

Structures

Protecting Surfaces

Other great ideas for classes: Mixed Media, Bible Journaling, Pre-K classes, elementary art classes, middle school classes, ----if you want to learn it, drop me a note and lets see if we can't figure out a syllabus that excites and challenges you! 

 

 

 

 

 

Studio Policies

Billing Policies:

When you, or your child,  are accepted as a student through Praise Heart Studios,  we will enter into a mutual agreement as we embark on weekly lessons.  There are certain guidelines to which I strictly adhere regarding missed lessons, the billing process, and late fees. These guidelines are consistently maintained, and cannot be altered as they allow the business portion of private lessons to flow smoothly and equitably. Currently, my monthly rates for private lessons are as follows:

 

30 minute lessons-  once a week, $50.00 per month.

45 minute lessons-  once a week, $70.00 per month.
60-minute lessons - once a week, $100.00 a month

 

10% discount for second sibling
 

These monthly fees reserve a weekly time slot which works like rent, one would pay for an apartment. These are flat fees to reserve your, or your child's, weekly time for lessons, whether you choose to attend or miss. Fees are charged for the month and are not lowered nor refunded for missed lessons. Please bear in mind that, during the year, some months will contain an extra week for which there is no additional charge. It is highly recommended that you attend regularly during these months, helping you to compensate for any lesson(s) you may have missed during the year.

 

Group Rates:

Group lessons are an affordable option!  Do you have a  small group that is interested in joining together to take advantage of lower pricing?  A group of homeschool students?  With 3+ students you qualify as a group and can take advantage of these lower rates. (Lower rates are paid by each member of the group and are subject to the same Studio Policies listed here.)

45-minute lessons - once a week, $50.00 per month
60-minute lessons -   once a week, $70.00 per month

Missed Lessons And "Make-Ups"

The studio shall not assume any financial responsibility for a student's absence(s). Monthly rates  are flat fees, and shall not be lowered nor refunded for missed lessons. "Make-ups" simply are not possible.  If classes are missed, students may have  the option to jump into another, comparable, class that I am teaching, these options will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

If, for some reason, a lesson/class/study must be missed, please let me know as soon as you are able.

 

Inclement Weather: 

If surrounding school districts are closed, the Studio will be closed as well. Makeup days/times will be discussed one-on one

 

Instructor Cancellation:

The studio shall, however, assume financial responsibility should any instructor at Praise Heart Studios becomes ill, be out of town, or cancel for any reason. The month's regular fee will then be reduced by that particular amount.

* Are you looking for space to sublet?  

A place to host music instruction, beading, Mary Kay demonstrations, scrapbooking, painting parties, etc? 

I have a few days/times that I will not be using the Studio,  These times are available at a rate of  $10.00 an hour.  Pay for the time you need and settle into PH Studios as a home away from home!
