Seeing the Forest & the Trees

Last week we did trees. Each week when I am planning what lesson to teach, I often think about an artist who exemplifies both mastery and a unique approach to the subject. When I think of trees, I think of Albert Hendel with whom I did a workshop in 2009.

Albert's Suspender by Heidi MayoAlbert’ Suspender

Looking at trees in different ways, like Albert, taught the kids a lot about looking at everything in different ways. When we really look at something, the preconceived notions and mind-made symbols about it fall away, opening up space to make good, honest art.

Enjoy these gorgeous tree paintings, and scroll down for the Weekly Schedules.

Please notify me 24 hours in advance if your kid won’t be coming. Payment is expected for last minute cancellations or no shows. Of course sometimes there are extenuating circumstances like illness that are handled differently. But if your kid gets sent home or stays home sick, please inform me at your earliest convenience.  I have not increased prices in 8 years and hope to keep it that way.
