AT OUR STUDIO
On-on-One, or Small Groups
At her studio located at Amused Gallery in Topeka's NOTO Arts & Entertainment District, Lisa is pleased to teach classes to individuals, two or three students. Classes are in a safe environment - we provide masks or face shields, hand washing and hand sanitizer. For groups of 10 or more, we can provide your class at Paper June (down the street in NOTO), or offsite at your location. The classes we offer include:

Children will meet for 1 hour per week and explore various cultural and art aspects of the Cherokee, tailored for children 8-12. Activities include language skills, clay beads, 'booger' masks, and Cherokee Basktry
•Teen/Adult Cultural Arts 10-week Program
Participants will learn about Cherokee history, introduction to Cherokee language, and will make and assemble a Cherokee Cornhusk Doll, Doublewall Basket, and Clay Beads.
