New Fun Classes for Kids 8-18 with Artist and Instructor Jen Livia - Jen loves to help inspire and foster creativity in her youth classes, she will teach a variety of techniques in each class and allow the kids to really make the paintings their own and explore their own style of creativity.

Each class can be modified to the age of the kids in class, the older kids will make more advanced paintingswhile the younger kids will still be able to finish but not as complicated. Samples and guided step by step instruction will be given with lots of room for individual creativity.  All classes are in acrylics and elements from each class will build on to the next.
