Back from Asian trip (WOW!!!) and for photos of my time in Okinawa and Taiwan, please feel free to visit/friend my FB page: Joanna Sakievich, then scroll down there for more photos than you probably want to see. I will blog more about the experience....later!
However, I'm finally getting over jet lag and very ready to dive into our summer art classes!!
TODAY we begin, and our classes are quickly filling up,
but I still have openings and would love to have your child join in the fun!
We'll begin by making greeting cards (complete with envelopes)
using wall paper, etc! You and your child can come to Hobby Lobby
and any employee will happily direct you to the art/craft room.

$40 for 4 classes, or $80 for all 8 Walk in, single class rate: $12

I had an amazing time and my head is full of plans (to be announced later) because of
this trip to Asia. Children all over the world have so much creativity
and ability; it's a pleasure to work and play, as together we achieve
our dreams and explore new skills! Each class will present ideas and techniques,
but I don't believe in micro managing,
so your child can create something he/she
really wants to make--I love seeing what kids dream up!
AGES 4-7: $40 for 4 one
hour Classes or $80 for all 8. Discounts
available for enrolling 2 or more together in the same classes!
AGES 8-12: $50 for 4,
ninety minute Classes or $100 for all 8.
Discounts available for enrolling 2 or more together in the same
-------------------------------------------------------------- DECORATIVE PAINTING, for Adults and teens, will be held later in the year. Cost for Classes are as follows (you are more than welcome to register for all 8 classes, as well as receive a discount for 2 or more in the same class together!)
Here are a few images of the type of things we'll be creating (depending on the class) during our time together-- CORRECTION: You and/or your children will undoubtedly make something never before seen or imagined!
We'll try our hands at drawing some animals and fish!
And not just painted, either! This image is from Pinterest, because I don't have mine scanned in, yet. But, some samples can be seen in the Hobby Lobby display pictured above.
We'll sponge paint sunsets, day and night skies, learn how to make our own "Mod Podge," and add a desert scene with it...
Deeper colors with stars added create night skies....
Rocks are ridiculously paint friendly and can become magnets, garden accents or paper weights!
Don't throw out old wall paper--cut, paste and create greeting cards!
Summer's a great time to play--include art and add magic to your family's summer!
Looking forward to seeing you (spread the word) in class!
(I'll let you know when online classes become a thing I know how to do, too!)

As a free-lance muralist and decorative painter since 1976,
I subsequently decided to major in English and Japanese. This emphasis, along with living and teaching in
the USA, Japan and South Korea, has added words to the art and music I've loved for so many years.
Along with teaching English,
I've had the pleasure of tutoring students in the Japanese language for 2 1/2 years.
By working daily with dozens of students
who are learning Japanese for the first time,
ideas for how to introduce this old and beautiful language,
in a more fun and intuitive way, have evolved.
Details about each class are in developmental stages,
but they'll include ひらがな ＆ カタカナ learning pages;
traditional songs and stories in Japanese and about Japan;
food tasting; art and paper folding; skits; dialoguing, &
a culminating group presentation of an original story in Japanese.
At the conclusion of each semester
group classes will share a presentation, food and creations with friends and family.
Classes will be available for Home Schoolers, preschools,
individuals and small groups of all ages,
beginning in the Fall of this year, 2016.
More information will be available in additional blogs,
as well as at the National Homeschooling Convention
here in Logan, Utah, July 28-29th!
