UPCOMING CLASSES

I offer art classes in Birmingham, Alabama in the Bluff Park Neighborhood of Hoover.  I'm always adding classes, so if you see something you'd like to take but it isn't listed, or you'd like to see it at a different time, just let me know!  

I usually only offer classes on Saturday January - April - so I have some really fun ones coming up!

After School Classes

Zentangle

 Weekly after school classes are based around a method of pattern drawing called Zentangle.  It helps develop drawing skills.  We also use other media - black and white ink, collage, kirigami, and we will use our skills to create a mixed media scene in a shadow box in November.

 ATTENDANCE POLICY:  Any class that is missed without notification will be charged the full rate.  If your child has a commitment come up (band concert, field trip, etc.), if you let me know a week in advance I can adjust the schedule and there will be no charge for that class.  If a child is ill and misses class (and you let me know they are ill that day), the first miss per semester will not be charged, but additional misses will be charged at the full rate.
