Art Classes

I've renewed my Earth Art classes with Explore Wildwood and The PEA Studio for another two sessions of classes! Please come check us out and share with your friends who are in the Greater Atlanta and Cobb County areas! 


Thank you Atlanta Insider for including us on your list of the 22 Best Atlanta Homeschool Days and Programs. We are truly honored! 



About: Our Earth Art classes include elements of earth science, art history, artistic skill and technique building, while getting to use quality art materials and natural items hand selected straight from the outdoors. Our focus is on learning where our materials are coming from and how to use them to create, classical art concepts and techniques, and the process of creating art from the heart.

While students will sometimes get to take home finished pieces, not all classes are centered on a take-home (wall-ready) piece, but students will always get to take home something from the class whether it’s a new material, practice sheets or sketches, or a finished picture.

These classes are designed so that you can either choose to drop into one when it fits into your schedule, OR so that you can continue to build skills on top of each other by attending a full (seasonal) session. A different material or concept will be introduced in each class, and each session will revolve around a designated theme. If you will be attending more than one class, feel free to bring a sketchbook with you. Child to teacher ratio is approximately 5:1 per class. 

Our regular classes are drop-off style, geared towards children ages 4-10 years old. (Adults may sit and read at the tables outside of the studio inside Champion Kids, run errands, or take siblings to Open Play in one of the gyms on-site. Earth Art students and their families will also receive a discount off of Open Play on the day of EA classes.) A few times a year (and booked for private classes) we also offer Junior classes, which are "mommy and me" style in which the parent and child ages 2-5 attend together.

Classes are held on select days of the month at 10:30 am. Classes are 1-hour long. Please arrive 5 minutes early to fill out paperwork at your first class. Topics are subject to change. Details and registration for each class can be found below.
