Between working, children, and everything else in life, we often forget to create space to learn something new, improve our selves, and explore who we are.
Perhaps you are someone who would love to give the gift of art to your child, and keep them occupied while you pursue the things you need to do! Time is precious and our children’s experiences are formative!
At Outside In Art, we provide an array of opportunities for you! We offer online courses in multiple art mediums. In each class or series you will walk away with new skills, experiences and opportunities to continue working on your own. The classes provide a community of learners who work together, provide feedback and a place to explore together.
What people are saying…
Ianthe taught both my children in many art classes. We now have beautiful woven pieces they created under her guidance, and well as fanciful sculptures and colorful drawings and paintings on our walls. My children years later still love to create and use techniques learned from Ianthe. Thank you for helping us see the world in new ways and to create pieces to express the beauty we experience and emotions we feel! - Julie W 7/2020
Joining Saturday Art Class (before Covid-19) was a great success. My Son Jordan an 8 y-o, enjoyed it so much he was so excited to wake up early every Saturday! Ianthe Jackson has been his Art Teacher since Kindergarten, so a very special connection. We've now transitioned to online classes during these times. Both of us enjoy taking Zoom Art Classes learning new technics and skills, a very helpful therapeutic time during the day, we both look forward to it. -Elizabeth Z -7/2020
"Ianthe is the art teacher you wish you had. In both kids’ and adult classes, she’s inventive, warm, supportive, funny. She listens to her students and shapes her teaching to fit what they need. I’ve been sketching off and on for years but knew I needed to learn fundamental skills. I worried any class would be too challenging or discouraging, especially considering the physical limitations I have from a chronic illness. With Ianthe, I’m learning so much and having fun doing it. Thanks to Ianthe, I'm beginning to "see" more like an artist, to break down the visual information I observe so that I can draw it more accurately. Her weekly class is the best part of my week. I’ve also seen her teach kids, who get the indefinable benefit of spending time with a real-live-artist, plus all of Ianthe’s kindness, enthusiasm and knowledge. And she does all this via Zoom! I can’t recommend her highly enough for both adults and kids. " - Liz K -7/2020
