Yes, we offer private art lessons for children 5 and up.

What are Group Drawing Sessions? 

These pop-up drawing sessions will be announced via our website "Events" section, social media, and via our mailing list when various locations become available.  An example of a Group Drawing Session could be a pop-up 'life drawing in the commons' or 'drawing from nature in the park.'  For the time being, we will limit the minimum of Group Sessions to 3 students and a maximum of 10. Payment is due at time of registration to hold your spot. 

What art materials do I need?
If you need art materials, have no fear!  When you sign up for our private lessons, we will send you a materials list of everything that you’ll need to pick up for several weeks of classes, sourcing different local buying options for you as well.  We try our best to keep our materials suggestions high quality and affordable for our students.  We also bring select materials to lessons if we are working with a certain theme.  We also offer a “Dot and Line Adult Art Materials Kit” that comes with our namesake tote bag!  Our Adult Art Materials Kit will have materials enough for at least 10 lessons.  For Art Pods and Family Art Sessions we supply everything you’ll need to have a successful creative experience, but feel free to bring materials that you'd like to work with.   

 

​What do I wear to make art?

Making a mess means that you are immersing yourself in the creative process!  We encourage wearing clothing that you don't mind getting messy, or even having your own art-smock to wear over your clothes.

Does Dot and Line Art Studio, LLC have Insurance and Clearances? 

Yes. Dot and Line Art Studio, LLC maintains a Business Liability Insurance binder, and since we are both educators working in school and museum settings in Pennsylvania, we both have FBI & PA fingerprint and background checks, and Certificates of Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse.  We can provide you with any further information that you may need.
