Below are just a few of the responses I’ve received from
moms about my mixed media art courses:
“Alisha Gratehouse is a wonderful instructor! [My son] has loved her lessons, not only for the actual instruction, but because she makes these projects so fun. I found him laughing out loud in his lessons so many times I lost count! He’s enjoying the art, but he’s also enjoying her as a teacher. That’s an added bonus!” ~ Emily C.
“[My daughter] spends almost her entire day, night and weekend creating. She has thoroughly enjoyed the Spring mixed media course and can’t wait to begin You Are A Masterpiece. Alisha you rock!! [She] LOVES all her art classes but yours is by far her favourite!” ~ Claire S.
“My kids have never gotten such good art instruction, not only in technique, but in the classical artists. We are LOVING this class!” ~ Susan E.
“This has been a great project for us to do together. I have been wanting to bring more art into my homeschool (I LOVE art history!) but have not felt confident in art instruction. We have all enjoyed your videos and creating art together… Your style is gentle, encouraging, and fun! Your accent makes me feel all cozy, like a nice cup of tea…” ~ Amy F.
“Thank you for sharing your gift of art! Your class has brought so much joy and beauty to our lives!” ~ Patty S.
“What I love about Alisha Gratehouse’s courses is that she designs projects that build the confidence of young artists which inspires them to cultivate their God given skills.” ~ Betsy S.
“This class is so much more than I thought I was buying. I thought I would get some ebooks with pictures and written instructions, but the videos are so much better! It’s great to see exactly how to do it and get new ideas for using the media. I’ve done a lot of acrylic painting on wood, but your ideas on canvas – using a wash over the papers, using fingers to apply an edge, and dabbing with bubble wrap……wow! And for my 7-year old art buddy, this is exactly what she needs, to see the different possibilities demonstrated, complete with the ‘oops’ moments. (Please don’t ever edit those out!)” ~ Pam C.
“Thank you for your great classes online! [They are] so much fun! Thirty years ago I remember wanting to make creative things but there were not any resources available to me then for such luxuries as art. But now I can enjoy your class with my children. So wonderful!” ~ Kim H.
“Both of us had a great time with the Art of Fall Mixed Media class working together and trying new art ideas. My daughter adored the time I spent with her and I found it to be very therapeutic! The projects are explained well and the videos make them easy to try on your own… It was just plain fun! The results were excellent and made lovely display pieces.” ~ Heather W.
“Parents, if you are crazy enough to want some high quality mixed media art lessons for your child(ren) you probably want to check out Alisha Gratehouse’s lessons. She makes everyone in our house feel like an artist by the time a project is finished. We’re even (willingly and joyfully) hanging the art up in the house! Where it can be seen. The price is right, too. So whether you have a couple, several, few, or gaggle of children it’s affordable.” ~ Christine C.
“We have been loving the art projects…Thanks for making the classes we are learning new each time. I never thought I could draw and paint like we did this week!” ~ Shannon F.
“Great class and SO much fun! We learned so many new techniques and I had as much fun as my daughter did. The videos show you step by step how to do it — even my 7 year old daughter could follow them.” ~ Leigh Ann T.
“My kids have really enjoyed the projects! Thanks for keeping the price reasonable for all us homeschooling.” ~ Julie A.
