youth art lessons in Newtown PA

Unfortunately I currently cannot accept new students.

I highly recommend:

or for great art classes for kids!

Bucks Community College has summer art camps too.

CLASS INFO  Classes are held September through May starting shortly after Labor Day and ending the week before Memorial Day.  Students 4th grade and up learn the fundamentals of good drawing skills while exploring various art mediums including but not limited to pencil, charcoal, pastel, acrylic on canvas, and watercolor. (No crafts) This is a traditional fine art drawing and painting class geared towards having fun and building confidence. Small class sizes of 6 students or less ensures individual attention and that students progress at their own pace.   Each class is made up of students of mixed ages and skill levels.  We do not all copy the same sample painting in these classes.  Every art project is customized to your child's interests!  Students are encouraged to invest their time and effort into producing quality art as opposed to quantity - this is not a race.

ART FOR A CAUSE:  Each spring we have an "Art for A Cause" themed art show held at Countryside Gallery in historic Newtown in early June.  Art can do more than decorate!  Art can educate, influence and inspire. I encourage students to use art to raise awareness and support the causes that they are passionate about in a positive and proactive way.

ONE PLANET: Species Vulnerable to Climate Change

TUITION is $17.00 per one hour class and includes all materials.  Class meets once each week.


NEED TO SKIP A CLASS?  I am willing to prorate with advanced notice.  If you would like your invoices prorated, please let me know by the 1st of each month which days your child will need to skip and I will leave those dates off of your invoice.  After the 1st of the month, if something comes up and your child needs to miss a class please call to let me know so I can give that spot to another student who needs to do a make up, and I will be happy to schedule a make up for your child.  I do not offer make up classes for no shows with no phone call to let me know.  After 3 no-shows I will have to assume that you are no longer interested in this class and I will offer it to the next person on the wait list.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.  

Our own Amelia B was chosen as a PBS artist of the month!
