Here is some information on two new kids classes beginning in January. If the class you are interested in is full, please ask to be added to our email list. Email me: artmachinestudios at gmail dot com.
**If you subscribe to my ArtMachine Studios Newsletter please note that the Encaustic for Kids class has been moved to Wednesday at the same time. **
This year I'm changing the model of classes to offer more technique based classes. I realized that so many of my students are already confident artists and what they really loved were chances to explore media and new techniques. So, to that end I have reduced the time spend on art history and basic art ideas, and increased the technique exploration opportunities.
The format is also changing a bit, instead of an on going class that you can jump into at any time I'll be offering shorter blocks of classes on specific techniques. Each class will go for 5 weeks. When the 5 weeks are over I will start two new classes in a different technique. You can sign up again if your child is interested in the next class subject, or take a break for those 5 weeks.
Classes for the 5-8 age range will always be on Tuesdays, 8-12 year olds will always have class on Wednesdays. Classes will always be from 4-5:15.

Golden Belt Studios is a large studio complex east of downtown Durham. Over 40 artists are currently working at Golden Belt and it is a great creative environment for your kids to learn in.
