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
