Wildlife Art: Sea Turtle! Ages 5 to 11 years

Join us for an art workshop with Brenda Benveniste!

The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle (Endangered).  Students will draw and paint this exquisite creature and its surroundings of Hawaii using high quality archival paper and superior inks and watercolor. Participants will learn composition techniques, detailed designing of nature's patterns and the intricate application of ink and watercolor process. Students will combine a meaningful connection between these living creatures and their expression of them in the visual arts.

Wildlife Art: Sea Turtle
Ages 5-11 years
Friday, September 20, 11am-12:30pm

Cost: $32/child, $27/sibling

POs cannot be accepted for this class.

Artists will develop a solid foundation of techniques in composition and a high level of art concepts including elements and principals, such as light and shadow, perspective and color and design, consequently finding confidence in drawing and an individual path for personal artistic expression.We use professional art mediums including, watercolor, pastels, acrylics, charcoal, pen, ink, mixed medias with high quality papers, canvas, boards, easels.

Ms. B has 25 years experience in teaching art to children of all ages, talents, and abilities.  She is the reason we decided to homeschool.  There is no way our daughter could get this kind of instruction in school.  Ms. B has been teaching her art classes to the Long Beach homeschool community for the past 4 years.  Families come back year after year while new families discover her gentle teaching style.

This is a drop-off class if parent and child are comfortable.  Parents are always welcome to stay and observe, though.  Lighthouse has an enclosed playground for younger siblings.  The trampoline is off-limits, though.

If you are RSVP'ing for one child, RSVP as yourself.  For two children, RSVP + 1, etc.

Feel free to pay online or bring payment to first day of class.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you!

    Eleanor is reluctant because someone took her chair painting home with them after the Van Gogh class, and she is still upset about losing it. But we are going to try again. I can stay with her, if necessary.

    Cindy, will Art Classes with Ms. B ever accept PO's again?

    • Cindy C

      I will have to ask her. With POs, she has to wait a month or more to get a check from the school. I think it's hard to do when you have alot of materials to get, but maybe we can figure something out.
