Adults, seniors and children of all ages and abilities enjoy art!

Painting, drawing, collage, card making, and needle felting are a few of the exciting lessons offered at Sunshine Art & Lessons.  Creating your own story boards, designing life size portraits and enjoying a variety of ‘how to’ techniques for the young budding artists happens here! In a calm and relaxing atmosphere where making art is EVERYTHING, the opportunities to work with charcoal, pastels, markers, pencils and other dry media are available. No experience is necessary. Pick and design what art projects YOU want to try. How about a painting on paper, canvas and YOUR OWN piece of furniture! 


Painting is a wonderful process of making strokes, lines and shapes, applying the primary colors to work and creating millions more, is all part of painting. We explore mixing and planning compositions and colors, and explore techniques of painting on paper, canvas, glass, clothing and even a piece of furniture!

Drawing is a good thing! Learning the foundations of drawing can lead to other creative art making projects. We enjoy a variety of ‘how to’ techniques and everyone feels like a budding artists. We offer a relaxed opportunity to learning and feeling creative while exploring the wonders and delights of art making. The opportunities to work with charcoal, pastels, markers, pencils and other dry media are offered. ​​ 

Collage, an assemblage of different forms, flat or raised, failed art paintings and ‘stuff’ otherwise discarded, is a creative process to making new art. Collage is often composed of numerous materials like paper, newsprint, photographs, ribbons or other 'attachable thingies!

 Needle felting is a craft that anyone can learn. It's a matter of having a  few needles, some foam, and wool in the form of roving or yarn. After that, you can pretty much embellish anything. 


Is your student working on an application and preparations for their entrance into an Advanced Art Program? Does their portfolio need assistance? We can cover questions on how to prepare the portfolio, as well as, provide opportunity to meet other art students in the program.
