Local artist offers free art classes for La Jolla kids beginning in January

Through a grant provided by the Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation, Janene Farmer will offer free art classes to elementary and middle school students starting Jan. 8 at the North University Community Branch Library, 8820 Judicial Drive, San Diego.

Farmer, an artist since age 3 and a public school teacher for 23 years, said students will work with drawing, painting, watercolors, ink, pastels and charcoal, and sometimes in groups to learn problem-solving techniques.

“I think the arts are so incredible as far as offering kids ways to become adventurers and problem-solvers, and to think outside the box. Art helps them in their other classes, too,” she said.

Seventh- and eighth-graders will meet 4:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesdays.

Third- and fourth-graders, 1-3 p.m., Wednesdays.

Fifth- and six-graders, 3-5 p.m., Wednesdays.

“Most students in the schools around here have half-days on Wednesdays, so that’s why we selected that (date),” she said.

To register, call (858) 581-9637 or send an e-mail to janenefarmer@sbcglobal.net
