“When you see the potential in EVERYTHING. You can create ANYTHING”. Found objects become unusual animals inhabiting strange places.
What is our philosophy and how are the days structured?
Our goal is to provide endless opportunities for process-oriented creativity. We strive to establish a relaxing, positive, and fun environment that meets the needs of our young artists. With that in mind, art activities and the daily schedule are subject to change as the day morphs organically depending on the needs and interests of our students.
We begin the day with a start time between 9:00-9:30 am (hopefully this will reduce the stress of getting out of the house on time!). Introductory activities during this time will be free-choice Artist Trading Cards and self-directed mixed-media work.
At 9:45 am our primary art activity will begin, followed by lunch and recess at approx. 11:15 am. The afternoon will be finishing morning artwork/introducing another art project (time permitting), and free-choice games (free choice board games, air hockey, Legos etc.)

The majority of her experience however has been providing after school art enrichment classes at Seattle Public Schools.

Elaine’s interest in folk art led to authoring a book on metal repujado, and several television appearances. She is responsible for developing and popularizing metal embossing techniques and products in the crafting industry.
Elaine has also received certification as a social worker, specializing in child care. Most recently she completed training as a sign language interpreter.
“Traditionally, folk art was created by people who did not even have a word for art in their culture. Art was simply what people did. It was a part of being human. My classes foster this philosophy in a contemporary setting. Folk art often has a practical purpose or meets a specific need. Many of my classes utilize found objects and recycling, reflecting our society’s need to conserve and repurpose”
