In May of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic stay-at-home order, a friend asked me if I could put together an art project for her family to do for Mother's Day. I quickly wrote a new art lesson and put together all of the art supplies she would need. The art project was such a hit with her family she ordered another set. She then convinced me to consider this as an extension of my business while my art classes were temporarily on hold.
The "At Home Art Kit" was created so children (and adults) could enjoy making amazing art, while at home.
The "At Home Art Kit" is a complete kit featuring some of my more popular art projects and some new ones, as I continue to create them. These art projects are designed to be done by artists of all ages (even adults will be able to follow along).
Each kit includes: a detailed step-by-step art lesson, a template, a wrapped canvas, paint, a cup for water, a paint palette, an art pocket with paintbrushes, art tools, a pencil, permanent markers and any other materials (like glitter).
Cost: "The At Home Art Kit is $20.00 per kit (does not include
shipping cost if necessary). Local families have the option of
picking them up at my art studio. Payment can be in the form
of cash, check or Venmo.
To place an order please email directly.
I will continue to add new art lessons, so check my website,
Remember it is FUN art, not FINE art!
Please feel free to contact me if you have an idea for
a specific project, or would like to learn how to draw something.
