Classes for Kids and Teens

I am thrilled to offer OUTDOOR Art classes over the next five months at the Poplar Tree HOA pool parking lot. There are classes for kids (ages 4-12), teens (13-18), and Adults (coming soon). See class descriptions below and click the links to register.

*COVID-19 protocols will be in place and regulations will be followed according to the state of Virginia. All classes will be held outdoors with proper social distancing. Prior to the class, you will be asked to fill out a Health form for your child and/or self. Masks required.

*Refunds will be given for any weather cancellations. Participants will be notified in advance.

Outdoor Art Classes for KIDS (ages 4-12) The following five classes and their descriptions offer a glimpse into the goals and objectives for each session. I encourage the process of art, just as much as the product. There is no set image in mind for the end product so for this reason, a four year old will be just as successful as a twelve year old. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions (sheena.custer@gmail.com).
