A message from director Nina Green:
Draw and Learn teaches private art education classes. I have 4 years experience in the area in after school, summer and adult workshop settings. I am a mother of 3 and have lived in Greensboro since 2003. My background is as an artist with a four year art degree. I teach a “directed” lesson involving all drawing together to start our pieces. Each hour long class is a self contained lesson designed to be completed in the time allotted. Our kids have very little time in their regular school day for art making and many kids find this an important outlet. Art education teaches many different things, my classes for example include natural history, geography, literature and a basic introduction to art and artists. In addition art class helps kids with fine motor skills, decision making, focus and problem solving.
I would like to offer a scholarship seat after I reach my minimum of 6 sign ups I get. In other words, if I get my minimum enrollment of six students, I will offer one scholarship to be determined by the school’s guidance counselor. If I get more enrollment I can easily offer a second scholarship seat. I will make my maximum class size at 18 students. I will gladly prorate kids who join in the semester as it progresses since so much of this is word of mouth based. I plan to charge $112 for an 8 week session starting on Jan 31. Depending on how it goes I’ll gladly offer another 8 week session.
