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.
Upcoming Art Camps!
Are you a Christian school looking for an advanced art program supplement that will could for a high school art credit? Visual Manna will do an advanced art camp that will teach excellence and will be an intensive art course where students can continue on and get AP credit if they continue at their school in the program.
Visual Manna teachers can also provide an art camp for younger age students with a Biblical view point that teaches the elements and principles of art, master works, and wonderful art projects that can be used in ministry.
We can provide this at your church or school or camp area as well.
One of our goals is to raise up the next generation of Christ centered art teachers. Teacher training for students is also available.
July 9-13 Kansas City Art Camp
This will include a half day at the Nelson, and doing a mural for a ministry, along with art training in painting, drawing and sculpting techniques and also graphic art.
