This contest has now ended.
Congratulations to our winner, Jayme!
Erie artist and RLB Art Studio owner Rachel Berlin is used to teaching kids in her at-home studio several times a week.
But she has made the transition to virtual classes since schools have shut down, offering free Facebook live classes every Monday and Friday, and Zoom classes for a small fee every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
My kids and I stumbled onto one of Rachel's free classes in the first week of quarantine, and have come back again and again.
At first I thought it would be a good activity the kids could do on their own while I got my own work done, but now Rachel's classes are a bright spot in my day too. I'm no artist, but she leads her "students" in such a way that even I have created pieces I've proudly hung up on our kitchen walls -- right next to the kids' creations! I find her classes relaxing and inspiring and a great time to catch up and chat with my kids.
You also don't need any special art supplies -- which is great, considering the situation right now. Just paper, pencil and markers and Crayons will do on most projects!
I want other families and kids to have the experience too. So I am excited to partner with Rachel on a class GIVEAWAY!
One family will win a spot in a Zoom class of their choice with Rachel!
