Home School Art 

“If you are looking for a place for your child

to study art in a meaningful way,

a place where they will actually

learn about art and art history,

then The Art Workshop is for you.”*


Take your child’s art education beyond the classroom!  Sketching on location, visiting museums and exploring the world around us and ourselves are a big part of our home school curriculum. Our successful home school art program was started in 1995, when Nancy Kopp, founder of The Art Workshop realized that there was a lack of specific art programming for children who were home schooled. The Art Workshop provides an enriching atmosphere to learn and grow artistically and socially. The feedback that we have received from parents who are educating their children at home, has been very positive through the years, and the students keep returning, which is the best endorsement!

Fundamental art concepts will be introduced using imaginative and fun projects. Art History is woven into lessons to expand the individual’s art knowledge, and encourage art appreciation. All students in our home school program, regardless of age, will be able to experience working with clay, wood, and other sculpture materials. Lessons in drawing, painting and using oil and soft pastels are spread out throughout the year.  A field trip will be scheduled as often as possible to reinforce the curriculum and encourage appreciation for art created by others.

Our goal is to teach the language and concepts of art and to encourage creativity. Students, in the process, develop a confidence in their own artistic ability and discover individuality in self-expression through a visual medium.

All classes are ongoing and can be joined at any time with a prorated fee.

I had always planned to give my children an art education. Studies show that children who do art learn to think about problems in a different way. Art is a wonderful way to express oneself. We know all these things, yet when it comes to squeezing real art education into our days we fall short. All four of my children have learned the basic vocabulary of art, studied art history, learned many techniques and methods in drawing, painting, printing, clay, and sculpture, and just generally learned to create. If you are looking for a place for your child to study art in a meaningful way, a place where he will actually learn about art and art history, then The Art Workshop is for you.

UPDATE    Deb and Scott Liston had 2 of their 4 children go to art schools.  Columbus School of Art And Design and DAAP at University of Cincinnati. Their portfolios were prepared at the Art Workshop!  They are now graduated and working in the art field.

Covid -19 Policies

Covid -19 Policies

We will be following the Ohio issued guidelines for Schools

  • Class sizes are reduced to 9 in the classroom and 6 in the pottery wheel studio.  This was the recommendation for our space.  All children and teachers will wear a mask at all times.
  • Children will be seated 6 feet apart and will need to remain seated throughout the class. Students will not be permitted to walk around. If you KNOW that your child can not remain seated for 1 hour or will not wear a mask voluntarily, please do not send them to our studio. We will have a zero tolerance for breaking these rules. And the student will be asked to leave the class without a refund possibility. Please understand, this is for everyone’s safety.
  • We are offering virtual art lessons as an alternative to physically sitting in the class.
  • Each student will be given their own supplies to use during the class.   We are requesting students bring a shoe box or a plastic container for this purpose.
  • When a student leaves for the day, the table and chair will be sanitized by the teacher.
  • We will not be using aprons, so campers are encouraged to wear old cloths.
  • Students will be required to wear a mask in the main studio for pottery wheel. All wheels are 6 feet apart and spread out among 2 rooms. There will be reduced class size to 6 students.  Again, supplies will not be shared. Each person will have their own set of tools, sponge and towel for the week. It will be up to them to keep them clean. There will be a thorough sanitizing process after a student leaves the wheel. As usual, the campers will clean their area and then the teacher will do the sanitizing process. We will make every effort to keep students 6 feet apart while they are watching the instructor.
  • Teachers will always wear a mask when close to the children.
  • We will have sanitizers on each table for the students use.
  • Your child’s temperature will be taken upon entering the classroom each time.

Regretfully, we must suspend classes for the rest of this year for our 3, 4 and 5 year old students.  We do not believe that it is possible to keep them truly safe in our environment.

The same is true for birthday parties and girl scout outings.  They are being suspended until 2021.

This is a hugely different kind of experience than everyone is used to at the Art Workshop. But we will do our best to conduct fun classes in the safest way possible.
