intergenerational clase de arte
nurture series 


an inspiring quality that  encourages care and growth to develop trust, strength and love.

nurture your growth as an artist each week

by creating same image and exploring different  art materials 

"nurture"  inter-generational  Arte classes


All ages, all levels and loved ones are invited to create arte together

monday & wednesday 's 1:00-2:00 pm & 6:00-7:00 pm pst

"nurture series" 

often nurturing qualities can be seen in beautiful animals and their behavior.

I am inspired to teach you how to draw, illustrate, paint and design

specific animals that show and share nurturing qualities.

My approach for this month of august will be to teach the same art image/study

on Monday and Wednesday with different materials and technique on both of those days.

Please Note: you are invited to attend all clases de arte  or drop in at your convenience.
