Art Together with Miss Alayne

Let’s Make Art Together!

Classes are taught by Miss Alayne and are taught in a step-by-step manner, where there is a method and technique taught to finish a specific project.  Both absolute beginners and well-practiced creators will find these teaching intensive lessons to be safe and encouraging, yielding amazing results. Students learn many drawing and painting skills WHILE they are accomplishing fine art together with Miss Alayne. A variety of media is taught as specific art supplies are introduced and explained every step of the way to the finished product. Enjoy the process as questions and experiments spark thought and imagination until the project unfolds completely at their own hands – students learn how to both draw and use color to finish their projects without marks on their projects by anyone but them! Students are proud of their own accomplishments. The subject of the projects will never repeat and a variety of media is continuously taught so you do not have to worry about a project repeating. 

Also, art classes are for EVERYONE and students are welcomed and celebrated from all backgrounds and beliefs.
