Established in May 2017, Prairie Horizons is approaching our first full year of business and services to the community of Chapman Kansas and beyond. We hope to continue to grow in our mission to foster creativity and love of the arts.
Mission: To facilitate the development and love of creativity in all students regardless of age, race or economic background through Art, Craft, and Music within a warm, and supportive environment within the Dickinson County area and beyond. We here at Prairie Horizons believe that creativity and artistic skill are something that all people possess because we are each made in the image of the Great Creator.
[05/10/20] I am still working on our summer schedule and our opening will be contingent on what the state and country decide about reopening, however if all goes as planned Monday the 18th we will have a registration day for classes and you will be able to register online as well. As it stands now, Tues will be Violin, Wed will be Art and Fridays will be Guitar. All lessons at this time will be private or in small family only groups. Beginning piano with Anton Davis will be Wed as well either on the upper or lower levels away from other lessons. We are doing our best to social distance and keep our teachers and students as safe as possible. I will post more information tomorrow.
[05/08/20] We are still waiting for family to arrive so no painting tutorial today but we will try to have one sometime over the next week. We will also be putting out a schedule for classes starting after the 18th this week!
[05/04/20] Prairie Horizons is planning to reopen for lessons and business on the 18th of this month in accordance with phase 2 of the Kansas plan. Since most of our classes are private with no more than 10 people in a group we feel we will be safe to do this. However we strongly will encourage students and staff to observe social distancing measures as much as is possible. We are excited to get back to providing art and music lessons but we need to be careful. We will be arranging classes so that only one type of lesson will be taught that day. For example, Tues will be violin classes only. I will be putting a schedule out soon outlining which classes will be taught on which days along with the available times. I hope this will work for everyone involved! Thankyou for your patience and cooperation.
Here is the painting I will be demonstrating tomorrow. Trust me it’s much easier than it looks. If you are interested in painting along with us you can purchase paints and supplies at Prairie Horizons Studio from noon until 2pm tomorrow. The live demonstration will begin at 2:10. Once the demo is over the video will be posted to our website for future use! Hope to see you there!!!
We will be posting our weekly painting party tutorial today Friday, Apr 17 at 2:00! You can come by the studio from noon until 2 to pick up a kit! If you already have paints and brushes we would be happy to sell you canvases only! Here is the picture we will be painting. It is beautiful and simple and fun!
We are at the studio with paints and canvasses for those wanting to join our painting party at 2:00! Or anytime you want to rewatch the video!
Here is tonight tutorial. I will post a better tutorial on the basics of drawing the human face when I have a better set up and lighting and camera stand. This one is pretty rough but if you are bored and want to give drawing a human face in proper proportion a try you can use this one for the moment!
These are what we will be painting tomorrow! They are so fun and I thought kids of all ages would love them. So if you need paint and canvas let us know and we will have it ready for you. Price for a small canvas and paint is $10 and a large is $15. Family groups are full price for the first and are half price each student after that. We will be posting our live demonstration at around 2pm tomorrow (Friday Apr. 10th) and will have the video available after that on our site to watch at any time. Plus stay tuned later this evening for my follow up demo on shading and drawing!!!!
[04/09/20] And tomorrow I do plan to do a live painting demonstration I will post a picture of the painting we will be doing today!!!
[04/09/20] Last night I posted a video tutorial on shading and I hope to do a follow up today where I apply shading techniques to drawing the human face. I may or may not post it live. Last night it was just too late for me to be that lively. Haha.
I am posting a quick tutorial I taped on my cell phone. I decided not to go live because it’s late and I am tired from too much stress gardening. Which can be a very real problem when you own several acres and are stuck at home during a pandemic. My back is killing me but here we go!
[04/08/20] I plan to post a tutorial tomorrow on shading techniques. This WILL be live and a recording will be posted to our site that you can watch at any time.
[04/06/20] So my plan is that I will be posting some small tutorials that will only require a pencil and paper and maybe a eraser. Then at least once a week we will post a painting project from the studio. Anyone can participate!
We are going to begin filming our live Easter Egg Painting Demi at 2:00. We will have the video posted after that for as long as people are interested in this project. I will also have kits available so long as supplies last but you will need to arrange pickup times with us at our studio.
Tomorrow at around 2pm or whenever weather permits I will be filming a tutorial on how to paint this adorable little Easter Egg painting for ages 7 through 97. If you want to pick up supplies for this project let me know. Total cost will just be $10 and will include a small canvas, a brush, and choice of three paint colors plus white and black. If you want to pick up a kit for this project please message me tonight with the number of kits you need and the colors you want that are available in the picture. We will have the kits ready for you to pick up by noon tomorrow at Prairie Horizons Studio 401 N. Marshall St. Chapman Kansas.
[04/02/20] Either tomorrow or Friday I am planning to post a live demonstration of a fun and easy easter painting activity. I plan on coming into the studio at least once a week to do some sort of craft that we can post online!
[03/28/20] I’m hoping to be finished with my commissioned project by this weekend and will start posting some art tutorials next week. This week has been hard for us but we will get through and do all we can.
[03/24/20] I am going to stay put today and maybe tomorrow until I figure out where exactly we fall under the stay at home order. However, by Thursday I hope to start streaming some art classes from the studio which should be fine since I OWN the studio and there doesn't have to be anyone else involved. So please stay tuned! Maybe this will be the beginning of something new for Prairie Horizons!
[03/24/20] I just received notification that a stay at home order has been invoked for Dickinson County so unless we are considered essential due to our work providing art and music education and reprieve to kids and parents then we will not be having classes this week or until the ban is lifted. I am so sorry that we are in this situation and have to close our doors. We will open again as soon as possible and do our best to continue to provide Art and Music education to as many students as possible.
[03/17/20] It’s official, Starting Thurs we will be offering family art and music lessons by appointment for groups of 5 or less throughout the day. Please message to set up a time to come in with your kids we will be cleaning between classes with bleach and disinfectant so it’s important that we schedule each class with time to fully cleanse before and after. I will be posting project examples for kids of all ages!
[03/16/20] Since all of our classes are small we will continue with art and music lessons this week so long as teachers and parents are willing. In fact if parents looking for an activity to do with their children during the day contact us at Prairie Horizons via messenger. We have several painting, craft, and music activities available for small groups of 5 or less that last a half hour up to three hours. Cost is $15/ hour per student or $12 / students in groups of 3 to 5 participants. We will clean all surfaces with bleach water and Lysol between classes. Please make sure all participants are fever and sniffle free! I will be posting more details tomorrow!
Prairie Horizons will be closing a bit early tonight (Tues Jan 21)) since my husband is out of town and I have farm chores to get to. But weather permitting we will be open the rest of the week till 6 as usual! If school is canceled due to weather we will still have classes provided I can make it out of my driveway and to Chapman... if not I will post otherwise! :)
