Edgemoor Art Studio was founded by Ruth Johnsen, a veteran school teacher, who saw the need for a place where children of all ages could learn art fundamentals, while freely exploring art materials and processes in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.
2013 and 2016 Kathleen K. Seefeldt Award Winner for Arts Excellence:
…is a unique art studio, especially for children and teens. We offer fine arts and phonics/reading tutoring for children of all ages. After-school and Saturdays available!
Come and see what everyone is talking about!
Children can let out their true creative spirit and fearlessly express themselves in a safe, non-competitive environment while learning traditional and modern techniques in art-making. Many class options available, including my grown-up and me, intro to art processes, open studio sessions, workshops, camps, parties, and more! Individual and group classes are available in our beautiful new studio located in Lake Ridge, Virginia.
“If you can think it, you can create it!”
We offer a variety of fine arts classes for children of all ages, art parties, phonics and more. Each lesson and assignment is carefully and thoughtfully prepared to holistically address several skill sets; keeping as a top priority the essential need for children to have many opportunities to question, think, brainstorm ideas, and make art through the creative process.
The role of the teacher is to facilitate and interact with the child while he or she is learning through creating. This is the place where children and teens are able to stretch their imaginations, build special relationships, and take as long as they need to focus on and finish an artwork without feeling rushed. Unlike other art programs which rely on copying, tracing, and filling in outlines to produce predictable results, our emphasis is on the process rather than a product in order to help children develop into independent and creative human beings.
