Now registering children and teens for fall art courses!
Berea Art House offers summer camps, after school classes, and art instruction for children and teens in the Berea area. Classes are taught by Jude Poulette in the studio at her home in Berea. Jude is an artist, musician, and experienced teacher.
The program at Berea Art House reflects two priorities – helping each student to turn his or her own artistic vision into reality, and educating students about art concepts, principles, and techniques. The students are encouraged to work in many types of media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, earth art, and the creation of art from recycled materials.
Berea Art House offers a variety of classes focused on guiding participants as they explore their own voice and creativity.

May 22 - 26 / Grades 3 - 8
You’ll learn to thread a needle, tie a knot, sew a running stitch and a whip stitch, use a pattern, sew on buttons, and make casings. We’ll make pillows, stuffed toys, tote bags, and a fleece hat. Everything you’ll need will be provided, but if you want to bring your own fleece or cotton fabric, you’re welcome to.
May 29 - June 2 / Grades 3 - 8
Instead of sending cardboard, old books and magazines, newspaper, and plastic containers to the landfill, let’s use them to make art! You’ll make a terrarium, a junkbot, 3-D cardboard stars, a garden gnome, and more.
June 5 - 9 / Grades K - 8
Anyone can learn to draw, and everyone can improve their drawing skills with instruction and practice. You’ll do a variety of drawings with plenty of opportunities for you to choose the subjects you want to draw. We’ll draw with pencils, colored pencils, charcoal, and permanent markers, and you’ll take home at least one framed piece.
June 12 - 16 / Grades K - 8
Seashells, rocks, leaves, feathers, twigs, and dirt can be turned into unforgettable artwork.
We’ll use shells for Sharpie art and candles, make installations for passersby to enjoy, create leaf and flower masks, and print with several kinds of natural materials.
