January issue of arTree magazine is here! Have you checked it out yet? I will share some preview with you this week, for now here is a little sample of the projects:
Don’t stay inside this winter! Explore snowy landscapes with Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and German Expressionism. Play around with cool and warm colors to create dramatic contrast and make your landscape scenes like none other. Discover the art of Josef Kote and decorate your mountains with patterns out of lines and shapes. Fill your skies with colors that will make the Northern Lights fade with envy.
Visit the polar bears and the penguins. Learn why they can never meet each other and what they do to stay warm in such cold places. Research the polar bears with us to create your very own infographic poster. Then paint your polar bear under the stunning Aurora sky.
Dress up your penguin in a warm and cozy sweater and paint him on the South Pole–using several easy and fun watercolor secrets that we will share with you. Play games, learn facts and explore the great snowy outdoors.
YAY! Our new website has launched! We have worked on it for a while now and I cannot even tell you how excited I am that it is launched and done!
Anyway, I’d love to show you how it looks! And what better way to look at our magazine, video trainings and presentations than to give you free access to at least one issue. Here it is.
It is filled with pages of art projects for kids 5-10 years old.
I chose one of my favorite issues of the magazine. I just love Paul Cézanne. Check it out, maybe you will fall for his apple paintings as well. For me, it is always about the back story… did you know, why he painted over 200 paintings of the apples for 30 years? You will know it in a minute…

Do not forget to check out the ‘see training materials’ to access videos, presentations and more.
Enjoy the season with Paul Cézanne and his still life paintings. Learn why he painted apples for over 30 years and why it took so long for art critics to appreciate them. Create your own still life with apples, pumpkin and squashes.
Discover how oil blends oil pastels and hairspray makes chalk pastels stick to the paper. Play around with composition and use a flashlight to shine some light on your art while you learn about highlights and shadows. Transfer your art using wet media film and test how observant you are.
Conduct a taste test, pay homage to famous artists with John Nolan and, most of all, enjoy the fall!

We have started offering a lot of different classes for kids in the Seattle area: from preschoolers to elementary-aged kids. These are the first things on our list:
This course is now taught at Woodside Elementary school in Mill Creek, WA – and since the Monday session is already full, we will probably be adding Tuesday one as well.
