Personal Art Classes –
Online or In-Person
I teach painting and drawing classes, both in-person and online. In-person classes are taught out of my art studio in Northeast Kansas City, in the shadows of the renovated Kansas City Museum. In person classes require a COVID vaccination.
I’ve been teaching online art classes for over a year to a variety of children, adults and out of town students as well. For more information, check out my personal online art classes.
My personalized fun, enjoyable, and informative art classes that will teach you the techniques, tips and concepts you need to learn to draw and paint or develop your skills.
