Journey Through the Arts

A MESSAGE TO STUDENTS, PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS:

This is just a little note to say that I am missing all of you at the studio! I hope you are all staying healthy and safe and are finding time to paint, draw and use your imaginations together!

I am so sorry that all of my kids and adult art workshops, birthday parties, after school classes and lessons have had to be cancelled for the time being but I am looking forward to welcoming you all back to the studio when it is safe to do so.

I can't wait to see your smiling faces back in the cabin soon!

We are closely monitoring the situation and will also keep you posted about our 2020 Children's Summer Program of Music, Art & Drama as safety information becomes available.

In the meantime if you have not already done so please "LIKE" my Journey Through the Arts Facebook page where I have been posting free kids step-by-step drawing lessons to keep you all inspired. (They are also a fun activity to do as a family around the kitchen table or to entertain and relax and adults too!)

As always please keep sharing your beautiful artwork with me as I have started the Journey Through the Arts Online Children's Art Gallery on my Facebook page. Together we can keep happy, healthy and creative!

Thank you for all of your support!
Take care,

CHRISTINE
