We’ve heard many stories from our peers who were thwarted as young people early in their art journeys by well-meaning adults. We've heard the stories from busy parents trying to work, teach, and do all the things and wondering how to fit in artmaking. A number of these adults were told at some point in their own art journeys that they weren’t good enough. And we share many of these stories!
We want different stories for our children.
We are a team of artists, educators, professionals and parents who know that making time for art is not only worthwhile, it’s essential. When children are given the time, space and encouragement to create art, they experience a certain freedom. A certain confidence. And we want to cultivate that without adding to parents'/teachers'/caregivers' growing to-do lists!
That’s why we created the Chicken Coop Club.
We provide quality, video-based instruction that guides children to be hands-on and get messy with their art! With a new lesson each week and a growing library of classes, we strive to make artmaking affordable and accessible. The videos speak directly to the children helping them build confidence in their creativity. We do not teach using a stroke-by-stroke method – we want each child to add their own spin to the lessons. Even better, all the instruction, supply information and curriculum connections are right in each lesson for adult helpers. We are honored to join your children/students/young friends on their art journeys and cannot wait to see how they grow as creatives!
We are a growing group of professional art instructors and artists who are here to support your student's art journey!
