Indigenous Art

Prior to your FREE consultation you many find some inspiration in the description of each art form below to help you create an experience for yourself or for your students in your classroom and or colleagues at work! Please note: All raw materials like porcupine quills and fish scales may not be in stock. These are higher budget items that need to be harvested, washed, dried and dyed prior to a class. The pricing will depend on the amount of work to prepare them to bring to your students. I have alternatives and these can be discussed during our consultation call.

All materials and supply costs are not included. Upon registration a list is provided.

    Work with us and master art in ways that you've only dreamed about.

    Barbara showed me a way to get the results I was looking for in painting a landscape. I could hardly believe the improvement I made in a month. She has a knack at simplifying the steps, and she inspires me to explore new ideas.

    Jack Smith

    I love art but I didn't think I was any good at it. Then I saw Barbara's art studio, I was amazed at all the different types of art! I wanted to try them all. I really liked beading. Now, I know what it means to explore the arts.

    Ava Green

    Was having troubles with shading and drawing animals. Barbara helped me practice my shading and animal drawing. Very helpful and I definitely recommend her!
