2015 CHILDREN’S CLASS SCHEDULE

Darrell Conducts Wednesday Evening Children’s Classes From 6 – 8 p.m.

Winter, Spring and Fall Session enrollments are for a 12-week period.  I accept enrollment in these art classes for up to 4 students, ranging in age from 8-17.  Enrollment is for the entire 12 week Session and not class-by-class.

Students are taught the basic techniques of painting in a systematic approach that allows the student to retain what they’ve learned in a previous class and build upon that information with each successive lesson.  After mastering the Basic Techniques of Painting, continuing students are taught how to compose paintings and how to put together paintings of their own design or from their own photographs.  All supplies are included.  Price is $25.00 a lesson due at either the beginning of the 12 week session ($300)  or by week ($25).

 

The 2017 Winter Session is for the following dates:

Dec 7 Dec 14 Dec 21 Jan 4 Jan 11 Jan 18
Feb 1 Feb 8 Feb 15 Feb 22 Mar 1 Mar 8

The 2017 Spring Session is for the following dates:

Mar 22 Mar 29 Apr 5 Apr 12 Apr 19 Apr 26
May 3 May 10 May 17 May 25 May 31 Jun 7

Classes start promptly at 6 p.m. and ends promptly at 8 p.m., so parents please be on time.

Tuition fee is $25.00 per class.  You can pay all at once or before each class.  All art supplies including canvas are included in the Tuition Fee.  Missed classes must also be paid for as well.

Most kids who attend our classes are there because they want to paint and to learn how to improve.  So we’ve enjoyed all our students and have not had any discipline problems with teaching kids for the past 25 years.

But we do have two basic rules.

  1. When the instructor is talking, everyone else is to remain silent.
  2. A student MUST NEVER USE THEIR PAINTING EQUIPMENT IN A THREATENING MANNER TO ANOTHER STUDENT OR AS A WEAPON.

We do hope you’ll join with us and learn lots of new stuff.


 

You Can Easily Book A Darrell Crow Studios Workshop In Your Area

Here’s How

OVERVIEW

Darrell Crow is available to teach classes in your studio or location of your choice. 

Darrell schedules workshops to promote his line of instructional art videos and the YouCanPaintClub.com. 

Besides excellent teaching and demonstration, students will be afforded ample opportunity to purchase these products.  This is the primary driving force by Darrell’s 2009 decision to provide quality instructions to his students at significantly reduced costs. 

NUMBER OF DAYS FOR A WORKSHOPS

You should plan on a 3 day workshop.  Students will complete one painting for each day of the workshop.

Hours typically run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with an hour for lunch.  Other hours are available.  Be sure to discuss any special requirements with Darrell

The best days for workshops have traditionally been Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Thursday, Friday, Saturday.

This letter, which is also on the http://www.darrellcrow.com site lists all dates in which a workshop has already been scheduled or the dates that are unavailable.

NUMBER OF STUDENTS

The number of students should be kept to a small number to ensure a lot of attention from Darrell.  Generally 12 students is ideal.  Darrell can accommodate up to 25 students without bringing in additional qualified instructors. 

PAINTING PROJECTS SELECTION

You will need to select which of Darrell’s projects you would like to paint for each day. This includes all paintings on Darrell’s websites

PROMOTION

It will be your responsibility to promote and sign up students to fill the classrooms. Darrell is quite experienced in promoting his classes and will share his knowledge with you and work with you to make sure the workshop is a success.

Darrell will make announcements on his newsletter and advise students in the general area of the class you will be hosting.

You will need to discuss what dates are best.  Please check with Darrell to see if his calendar will allow him to conduct workshops on those dates.

WORKSHOP FEES 

Darrell essentially conducts these workshops at very low costs to ensure the maximum number of students can attend each workshop.  Basically, you will need to cover his traveling expenses, the living expenses at the workshop and $400 a workshop day.

In general his fees are as follows for a 3-day workshop:

  • Airfare or estimated travel expenses.  It will be the responsibility of the host to purchase an electronic, round trip ticket for Darrell after all of the details of the workshop have been ironed out.
  • Hotel if necessary.  This fee must be received prior to Darrell’s Departure.  Darrell is happy to stay at any of the host-arranged accommodations.
  • Meals as necessary.
  • Rent-a-car if necessary.
  • Workshop Fee. This fee is $1,200 for a 3-day workshop.  $300 is due within 60 days of an agreement and $900 is due upon Darrell’s arrival.

Please Note:  Funds for the hotel/meals/auto rental must be received prior to Darrell’s departure from Massachusetts.  Many times, hosts have extra rooms and would prefer Darrell stay with them to save the costs for hotels/meals/auto rental.  Discuss this with Darrell.

STUDENT TUITION FEES.

The host may charge any fee desired for each student attending the workshop. 

One suggestion for establishing the student fee is to identify all of the expenses as noted above, divide by the number of student seats, and add on any additional expenses you incur in conducting the workshop, i.e. room rental.

  • Darrell’s fees:  $1,200
  • Airfare:              $  500
  • Accomodations, local transportation & all meals host provided.
  • Total Costs:     $1,700
  • 12 Students 3 days each = 36 seats
  • Minimum class fee = $48/student.

Darrell recently conducted a 3-day workshop in which he had 23 students for each of his classes for a total of 66 student seats.  The host set the price at $40.00 per student per class and easily met all of Darrell’s expenses and workshop fees (not to mention a nice profit for herself).

STUDENT ART SUPPLIES.

Darrell does not bring or supply art materials for students to the workshops.  They are responsible for bringing their own materials.  As a host, you may elect to supply material for either sale or use.  You may check his website for the supplies he typically uses and discuss with him the supply list for each painting selected for the workshop.
