Chinese Art Tea Party

Education can be like a party. Here are a few pictures of our first Master artist tea party projects. It was a delightful time of painting parasols, panda bears, and doing Chinese brush painting during our Chinese Art Tea Party. Choose from one of twelve delightful party educational experiences. Each party is totally unique packed with learning fun! We have bible truths and different spiritual lessons to go with each tea party that can be shared at the end of the party. Cover your art for the year in a party format with friends.

Upcoming Online High School Art Lessons

We are offering two different sessions of online art classes at Junior High and High School level. Each session is made up of 6 weeks. First session starts September 24th, ending on October 29th. The second session starts November 5th, ending on December 10th. The lessons will be approximately 2 hours, either be 9am to 11am on Tuesday morning or 6:00pm to 8:00pm on Tuesday evening (central time). The first six weeks will be very foundational, starting with covering the elements and principles of art along with art history. We will learn techniques in media in the second part of every class. The second six weeks will include teaching instructions for the paint parties, while creating really nice personal and unique works of art. The goal will be helping the students get together a professional looking portfolio/body of work. You may pick either one of the sessions, or do both. I will have a list of supplies needed for online work. 

In supporting the online classes there are educational trips that the students may go on. The mission trips could include doing paintings at City Union Mission in Kansas City, or art ministry in St. Louis. In both cases we will go to their local art museum, or (for St. Louis trips) we may go to the Montauk State Park where we will study art and do something for the veterans. I also am praying about some trips abroad. I am going to Italy in February to scope out a mission trip there, and am also praying about Israel where there’s an opportunity to do some murals. The abroad ones are not definite as of now, and the dates on the other ones will be put up next week. All trips are optional, however coming to at least one would be preferred.


Here is more about me as a teacher: Last year I taught high school and AP art at a large Christian classical school in Kansas City, and developed a wonderful curriculum. Student will cover a half credit of high school art in each session, and will get one whole credit of high school art if both sessions are taken. It is my goal to develop graphic art skills and visual communication skills including photography and video training. I treat every student individually and they can work at their own pace. Students will be encouraged to be bold, be original and be excellent. If you want to see a sample power point or have any questions you may email or call me. Sharon Jeffus

New Six-Week Online Classes Available

I am very excited to be teaching these high school online classes this fall. They are separated into two parts. Students can take one, six-week class, or both. My hope is to mentor these talented young people in art so they can use their talent for the Lord with excellence. My goal is that each student would be able to have a great portfolio and body of work at the end of the class that they could use for free-lance art or college, etc… I have two AP classes I have been certified to teach as well. I will also be offering several one-week camps where students can learn how to do art in ministry for students taking this class. We will be developing murals for local homeless missions and ministries, and going to the fabulous Nelson Art Museum, right here in Kansas City. Families are always welcome. Online class would be from 9:00am until 11:00am central time. Classes will start on September 24, and be every Tuesday. The first hour of class we will be looking at power points and learning the elements and principles of art and art history. For the second part of the two-hour class I will be introducing two techniques in media, and students will be assigned two art projects that would be appropriate for their portfolio. Visual Manna slogan is “Be Bold, Be Original, Be Excellent.” Contact me for more information, Sharon Jeffus: 573-453-6364.

Feedback from a satisfied parent:
“Thank you for the quality classes that you provided for my daughter last summer.  She learned so much… not only in art technique, but ways to use art skill for the Kingdom.  The projects were just beautiful and I am sure a blessing for the men that visit.  :)”
