Hello, artists & future artists!
Private Lessons by June Jewell, fine/graphic artist
Ages 3 & up
Having an art class of my own has been a dream of mine since I was very young. I am currently a Stay-at-Home-Mama & have decided to take on some students in Loudoun County, Virginia for private courses. Being creative with young children is one of my favorite things to do. Watching them develop & improve their skills is so rewarding to me. Lessons will be available in your home or my home studio in Purcellville. Each class will be 45 mins. for three year-olds & an hour for fours & up. Parents are, of course welcome to sit in. Adults are welcome, too! You are never too old to do something as rewarding as art.
I have explored many different art mediums in the past & would like to share as much as my knowledge as possible. My favorite medium is acrylic painting, but I also enjoy watercolor painting, pencil drawing/charcoal/colored pencil, pastels, pyrography (woodburning), embroidery, computer illustration, collage, block printing, & silkscreening.
After the initial starter course, students will pick & choose/ mix & match courses based off of the skill that they would like to learn. During each class, the student will learn drawing, painting, & color mixing skills, as well as art related vocabulary & history that they may carry with them beyond the lesson. Students are greatly encouraged to draw what they see & demonstrate their new skills in between classes.
After every 6 classes, Ms. June will present one finished piece from the portfolio either framed or mounted in some way to the student. Also, parents will be given a summary of the classes taken thus far from the child's folder, noting projects done & progress made.
