Recent Tales of a Teaching Artist


When she’s not sorting colored pencils, Erin is mostly likely sorting through something else–usually a reusable scrap material and finding a new unique project for it or helping others with a creative process.


Right now we are busy with Art FORM activities including planning for summer workshops. Each year its so fun to design new summer themes or reinvent long time favorites. Erin has been teaching art in the studio for 8 summers now–check out this summer’s workshop series with Art FORM below.

What’s Happening at Rare Hare Studio…

Rare Hare Studio’s website is under construction right now.  Stay tuned as we put our new look and offerings into place!

Since January 2008 The Rare Hare Studio has been offering art classes to children ages preschool through 8th grade, introducing a wide variety of materials and techniques.  Students are encouraged to explore supplies and tools freely, as well as to participate in guided lessons. Basic artistic elements such as line, shape, color, texture, form, space, and value, as well as design concepts, are discussed and practiced at appropriate grade levels. Study of these elements is further enhanced by an emphasis upon the use of patterns and rhythm in art. Taking note of patterns in the environment around us and how they can be interrelated is an integral part of this process.

We offer a truly unique mix of classes where participants can discover new things and yet build on what skills they may already have. Some students can draw very well, others may prefer to make sculpture or weave.  At Rare Hare Studio, many of our projects used mixed media, so participants are exposed to a wide range of materials and applications. We offer opportunities to develop existing skills, and introduce new skills in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
