Here's what people are saying about these classes:

"My daughter LOVES Ms Maddie!"

"Ms Maddie's class is fun! She is really kind."

"I enjoy the discussions about the books. Even if I haven’t read the story, she talks about it, and I can get a good understanding of the story and still participate in the discussion.  She walks us through all the steps and teaches lots of techniques for sketching and painting."

"I always like the end product." 

From Parents:

"The instructors are super encouraging and do a great job of building value in each student’s contributions to the study of “art.”  Neither of my children are natural artists, but they sure do feel more accomplished by the end of each class. The confidence boost is an added bonus. The girls are learning useful foundational skills that can be and are being applied to areas outside of class. The parent communication and class organization of each instructor is clear and easy to follow. The reading pace and selection of the books pair nicely with the Foundations cycle. We’ll be back again next year! "

You'll get a recommended reading list so you can extend the lesson outside of class! Class will cover Egypt, Old Testament Times, Greece, and Rome. It will include children's classics such as these:
