Classes for Young People
Learn to Paint
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
- Pablo Picasso
“I am of use to the younger artists through the advice and criticism which I give them.”
- Howard Pyle
Painting: A Creative outlet your child needs!
National studies show that children who participate in creative activities – like drawing and painting – get better grades, miss fewer school days and get into less trouble. Jack Knight sets the tone for fun, creative and productive children’s classes. Plus, children get exposed to art and painting techniques they won’t learn in school.
While Michaels offers children's painting classes, I do not teach these. I find them too simplistic and the subject matter is restraining. The classes I offer for young people are exactly the same as the classes I offer for adults, with the only difference being in the age of the students. I focus on actual learning rather than having them all churn out the same exact piece of art work.
This article discusses the value of art for young people.
Art for Scouts
I have done numerous painting classes and projects for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as other group classes.
If you art a scout leader (or other such group) and would like to arrange for a painting class, art activity or a free painting demonstration at one of the locations I am at, please feel free to call or email me and we can go over the details and work out a time
