Create your own Art Class

Email Chris at portraits@artwithchris.com to tell her what you have in mind for an art project for you, or your child, a group pre-k of or elementary school age students or friends, teens or adults, and she will help you set up a customized art class tailored to your specifications. Many moms take these completed customized art projects and use them as the focal point in the interior design of an office, family room, dining room, play room, bedroom or bath.

You can request any kind of subject matter for your art project(s) using any media in any combination, art board, canvas or paper you want. Customized classes can be set up after school, during the summer, weekends, in service days and holidays.

Some examples of past customized art projects:

(This project was completed in six 2.5 hour lessons.) One mom used these three paintings as the focal point in the interior design of her boys’ bathroom and bedroom.
