Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of oil pastels, exploring a spectrum of colors and techniques that bring your visions to life along with an art piece inspired by Matisse. Next, we feature a fun illustrated project of an ice cream cone with color pencils, inspired by Wayne Thiebaud's classic style. As you progress, our sculpting lesson will guide you through the tactile pleasure of molding and shaping with air-dry clay. Finally, we have a fun paper-based lesson where you cut out, and glue together a birdhouse, along with a reflection activity around insight. Our lessons are meant to encourage hands-on artistry and classical thinking that goes beyond a standard YouTube art lesson, while using supplies that are simple, accessible, and less-mess.  Join us at "Artisans + Makers" and unleash your inner artist today! Included in the resources you'll find a welcome letter, and our less-mess art supply list. Note, while most of these lessons are accessible to kids, parents may have to supervise portions of the lessons that include cutting, gluing, or working with air-dry clay.

At Artisans + Makers, we create fun, wholesome art lessons for the whole family. 

Our company is founded by husband-wife creative duo Ben and Rebecca Faubion:

Hi I’m Rebecca. As a second generation artist and veteran teacher, I'm passionate about the role artists can play in shaping society toward what is Good, True and Beautiful. This passion has led me to study Renaissance Literature, live in Italy and West Africa, and earn a Masters (Arts-in-Education) from Harvard.  I've worked with schools, districts, private academies and community centers, and I've seen how great arts education begins at home. That's why Ben and I founded Artisans & Makers: to equip you, our fellow parents, to raise up a new generation of extraordinary artists! With on-demand lessons, printable books, templates and videos we make it easy, wholesome, and uplifting for your kids to learn art from home.

Hi I’m Ben. I want to encourage you: your kids don’t need to flounder for years wondering how to turn their raw artistic talent into a viable career! As an Art/Design Professional, I’ve learned the importance of stewarding my creative abilities so I can flourish financially and otherwise. There are mindsets, habits and skills that can set your kids on a course to prosper. These same tools can even help you thrive as a parent despite our dizzying modern world. Staying hands-on, pursing artisan-quality in the crafting of your unique life, and being a great parent raising vibrant kids is all possible. You don’t have to be perfect, and you don’t have to do this alone. We welcome you to join us—from our family to yours—on the journey of Artisans & Makers.
