Art projects can be modified to take into account the age of the participants and time limit of the art class or party. All activities are taught by David Smith, a licensed art educator for over 40 years. The art activitiy starts with David Smith instructing you on how to use the featured art medium, and ends with you following your own creative path. Drawing and painting can be taught two ways:
1. Everyone in the group chooses his/her own inspirational image and is given individual assistance in their creative endeavor.
2. We can take you Step-by-Step through a painting or drawing created just for your group, such as a “Winter Farm Landscape” or  “Still Life Floral Motif”

NOTE: David Smith was recognized by the National Art Education Association as the 1994 Illinois Art Educator of the year, the Illinois Art Education Association as the 2011 Elementary Art Educator and also in 2014 he was recognized as an IAEA Distinguished Member.
