"Linda is great at engaging people in the notion that they can be creative. She gets people excited that they might be able to paint or draw or sculpt. Part of it has to do with her passion about being an artist herself. She makes that very contagious."

Resources & History Guides

Every Art Project in the Academy includes:

  • A supplies list to help you shop for your art project,

  • Step by step instructions,

  • Preparations to get you started and clean up when you're done,

  • Best practices to store your supplies so they last for many years,

  • A brief history of each art form.

You'll have everything you need to have a creative and artful learning experience AND have a beautiful work of art in the end.

Here's what the Chido Gross kids have to say about their art experiences.

"You learn a lot more about history when you study art too."

~ Jackson, age 14

"Studying art gives you more respect for people in history. They had to make everything themselves! I made a small fresco and it was hard. Can you imagine what Michelangelo had to go through to make the Sistine Chapel?"

~ Mona Rae, age 16

"Art is like a geode - even in the harshest times, art is the diamond in the rock."

~ Georgia, age 14

"I think art in general just makes you a better person." ~ Mona, age 16

"You don't have to be an artist to be an artist. If you really believe you can do it then you can do anything."

~ Georgia, age 14

"I love drawing. I love making stuff with Mom." ~ Louis, age 12
