Each class is taught by an artist and follows a curriculum created by fine artist and educator Maureen Claffy. All Draw and Paint for Life classes include a take-home sketchbook to hold ideas and a zippered canvas bag to hold a pencil, eraser, sharpener, and a fine line and medium line sharpie.

Class is structured in two parts:

Teaching centered around a custom printed ArtBook written by Maureen Claffy which includes:
Introduction to the work of a celebrated artist
Video showing the artist's work and related techniques
Color of the week, color mixing/theory
Focused object tracing to learn line, form, and shape
Jump to drawing page to increase confidence and solidify drawing skills
Imagination page
Method, material, or design principle of the week


Open studio time to paint and draw original art with professional quality materials, including:
Watercolor palettes
Watercolor brushes, angled, flat, round, and mop
Colored pencils
Colored markers
Oil pastels
Masking tapes
High-quality paper in various sizes


We end each class with circle talk, where the children learn to talk about their art and their artistic process.

We create a universe of Yes with positivity and encouragement for our students. We foster any artistic path the children want to follow and they gain confidence, new skills, and a new understanding along the way.
