Why Is Art Important?

Art is everywhere. It is all around us and it is within us! Creating your own works of art adds a calming effect and increases self-discovery as well as self-esteem. If you live in Ahwatukee, Tempe or Chandler, this is the art class you are looking for where you or your children will produce high-quality pieces of art for all to enjoy and benefit from!

“The arts enhance the process of learning. The systems they nourish, which include our integrated sensory, attentional, cognitive, emotional, and motor capacities, are, in fact, the driving force behind all other learning.”

– Quotation from Eric Jensen’s book, Arts with the Brain in Mind. Mr. Jensen is the author of over 20 books on the applications of recent brain research to education.

Students enjoy learning new art techniques and look forward to coming to the art studio. Kids will want to spend more time creating art when they can apply their newly learned skills.

Parents appreciate the fact their children are learning from a trained artist.

We Are Losing Art in Our Schools

Budget cuts have drastically reduced art programs in our schools. In many cases, art programs have been removed entirely. Yet, children still have a real need for art.

We find art all around us and creating your own artworks will increase self-esteem. The work has a calming effect during the process. Students will leave the lessons with high-quality art projects. As students bring amazingly creative art projects home the whole family will appreciate and benefit from these lessons.

Convenient Times

Lesson times are twice a week for children, once a week for adults.  The length of the  lesson is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Goals for the Lessons

  • Students will learn art skills, building from their current level and progressing forward.
  • Students will gain self-confidence and self- discipline in artistic endeavors.
  • Students will develop their own artistic style while enjoying the creative process of making interesting projects.

Although I am a professional artist, I had never attended a watercolor class before.  When they offered classes at The Springs of Scottsdale, I started participating.  The class is taught by Kathie Kelly, which started my new painting direction, watercolor.  My very first painting has been published in the National Muscular Dystrophy Association, 2017 calendar for the month of January!

Kathie is extremely helpful both to beginners and to those of us who have experience in other mediums.
