Art Lessons



In this class, students will learn basic painting techniques and will experiment with how to manipulate and use different types of paint. Students will paint from life and from their imagination. There will be four paintings created during the course of the 8 weeks using acrylic paint, oil paint, watercolor paint, and wax paint.

Amy Heywood will be a guest artist for one class and teach us how to use wax paint.


Kathryn Chaney - Originally from Greensboro, NC, Ms. Chaney is Wesleyan’s elementary and middle school art teacher. She completed her BFA in Art Education at UNC-Greensboro. Her experience includes art education with kindergarten through high school, utilizing mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, and mixed media sculptures. Kathryn has also served as Arts & Crafts Director and Basics of Photography instructor at local camps.

She believes art is not only a way of expression and an outlet for students, but also a form of worship to our Creator. While creating art, students gain a greater appreciation for our Heavenly Father and the works of His hands. Art allows us to see the world differently and experience life more fully. It is intertwined in all areas including math, science, social studies, and language arts. As students are exposed to various forms of art, they grow into well-rounded individuals.


Registration will be on a first-come basis and will only be secured by payment of the registration fee. Full tuition payment is due by the first class. All checks are payable to: Wesleyan Christian Academy.
