'Art for Two' offers private, one-on-one art tutoring to students ages 3-15 in the Palms/Westside Village neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA with artist and teacher, Heather Sky Hilary. 1 or 1.5 hour sessions are available weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly allowing students to explore multiple artistic mediums at their own pace. I can also come to your house for sessions! What ever is easiest for you.
When the process of art is both joyful and challenging, students attempt investigations they might otherwise shy away from, growing in the process. I hope to bring joy and creative challenge to your child's life.
'Art for Two' exists to inspire curiosity and bravery when art becomes too strict, vague, 'scary', 'boring', or 'hard'. By providing a warm, safe environment and nurturing a dynamic, trusting relationship with each student, I seek to create a space for those children whose creativity peaks when they feel welcomed. Sessions take place in a sunny well lit studio offering warmth and inspiration in the Palms area of Los Angeles, or at your house. You choose!
Sessions begin with life drawing and conclude with a project of the student's choice. Options include but are not limited to: Soapstone carving, puppet & doll making, collage, miniature habitats, ink/watercolor/oil painting, paper mache, Jewelry, clay, woodcraft/carpentry, and book arts/illustration. Students are encouraged to introduce projects of their own design while using studio materials. Bring in ideas from home! We can make them. Immersion and curiosity in the art process is the goal: the final creation is a beautiful bonus.
